A handsome single volume includes three previously published stories ( Granddaddy’s Place , Granddaddy and Janetta , and Granddaddy’s Stars ) about timid Janetta and her indomitable Grandpa, who seems gruff on the outside but whose droll stories reveal his surprisingly playful nature. The new format, designed to look like a chapter book rather than a picture book, will appeal to newly independent readers, and the large typeface set on cleanly designed pages will make it accessible as well. Most of Stevenson’s original artwork appears here as black-and-white spot illustrations. (Ages 7–9)
