Physical Description
1 volume of unnumbered pages : colour illustrations ; 24 x 28 cm.

Charmingly detailed illustrations help tell a touching tale of the bond between grandparent and grandchild in a quiet yet powerful debut. "Thursdays are my favourite days." "Mine, too." Every morning Grandpa follows his normal routine. He drinks his tea, waters his plants, tidies up, and takes the bus into town. Grandpa enjoys his daily tasks, but there's one day each week that is extra special. That's the day he might visit the craft shop, get two orders of dumplings to go, and possibly pick some flowers he sees along the path. With its spare text and wonderfully warm watercolour and cut-paper illustrations just begging to be pored over, Joowon Oh's tale of the singular love between a grandfather and granddaughter will nestle within the heart of every reader.
