Dada loves all the presents that he receives for his 82 birthday, except one – a walking stick. He scowls at it and puts it away in a corner. Then, he discovers that it can be used in more ways than one. Nalini Sorensen beautifully captures the spirit of aging grandparents who refuse to cede their independence. Charming watercolour illustrations by the hugely talented Allen Shaw enliven this buoyant tale.
