The creators of Charley's First Night return with a tale of a boy, a puppy, and a grampa -- an enchanting picture book bearing all the hallmarks of a classic.

It's a snowy day, and Grampa is coming by train for a visit. Henry can't wait! He sets out with Charley, his beloved pup, pulling a sled for Grampa's suitcase. To pass time at the station, Henry tells Charley about Grampa -- how he has the longest feet and snores wild, and how he doesn't know how to be friends with a dog. At last Grampa arrives, but when a sudden gust of wind blows his hat away, Charley disappears into the whirling snow -- and returns, to their relief, carrying Grampa's green cap! With lyrical simplicity, Amy Hest narrates a small, turning moment in the life of a child and a grandparent, while Helen Oxenbury renders every gesture and detail with signature warmth and charm.
