In the fourth volume in this series of easy chapter books, Grandaddy is traveling from Georgia to Baltimore to visit Janetta for a change. Janetta, true to form, worries constantly about the visit: what if Grandaddy misses the train? What if he sleeps through his stop? What if he finds everything Janetta plans to show him boring? And Grandaddy, true to form, arrives rearing to go, with his repertoire of funny stories and wry observations which soon set Janetta's mind at ease. Helen Griffith excels at creating distinctive, fully rounded characters through dialogue, while James Stevenson's understated line drawings with watercolor washes provide the perfect complement. (Ages 6-8)
