Grandma does not make it to the end of the book!
on March 14, 2013
Something I wish would have been made a bit more apparent to me prior to purchasing this book. it was meant to be a gift for a coworker, who loves gardening and was expecting her first grandchild. I "Looked inside the book" and found no mention of the fact that the poor child would at some point find her beloved grandma slumped in a chair, DEAD! As the dark ghostly figures take away grandma, the girl cowers alone, at the base of a staircase, gripping a blanket. In the explanation to the child, her dear Grandma is lumped with a ratty dog and a tree with the phrase, "Everything dies one day." Thank goodness my friend has a wonderful sense of humor and we all got quite a laugh at it. Lessons learned; do more than "Look Inside the Book" and don't buy this book!
