Grandpa is in for a big surprise, war has been declared and he had no idea it was coming. A good story, a good moral theme of resolving differences yet being friendly while negotiations are ongoing. The solution was a great one because it involved communication and ideas from all parties.
I had lots of laughs.
Entertaining for a family car trip. Highly recommended! Told from the perspective of a boy, has a good message at the end.
"A simple. relaxing read/listen "
If you are looking for something to tie you over before moving onto the next intense read, this would definitely fit the bill. I would also recommend this for younger readers too.
"good read with the kids"
my 7 year old really enjoyed this, and I did too. nice read together.
"War with Grandpa"
My 8yo grandson & I listened together & loved it . Great narration & story!
"Great values and good kid-references"
Loved the values this story subtly includes. It had my 9 year old hooked with interest, especially because of so many 9-year-old references (Star Wars, Risk, Hank Aaron etc). Definitely recommend for this age, my 7-year-old wasn't nearly as hooked.
"Fun for the whole family"
Fun for the whole family. Mom, Dad, Nadia age 10 and Peter age 6 all fell in love with the story. Very entertaining and well read.
"All's fair in love and war"
Listened to this book on several short car rides with my children (ages 6, 9, 15)....they enjoyed the story which was lighthearted and humorous. I found myself laughing out loud more than once. I would recommend for children as well as family listening time.
