A little boy [no name ever given] is required to bring someone to school for show and tell, but he must also talk about them for ONE WHOLE MINUTE first. Everyone in his family declines except for his crotchety old Grandpa "FRANK". But the little boy is unsure about this as he thinks all the other kids have way more interesting people to bring and talk about. But Frank and his stories about the way things used to be and his exploits saves the day and he and little boy become heroes.

Simply a cute little book with great illustrations and a gift that I'm sure most grandpas and grandmas would love to bequeath to their grandchildren, as I know I did. A nice change of pace from the average kid's book.

Although he lives with his grandfather, the boy finds he doesn't really know him until a class assignment gives him a chance to see his grandfather as a very different younger man than what he imagined.

How many children can really picture their grandfathers as vibrant young men? This book provides the opportunity to talk about Grandpa's youthful adventures and may surprise many a child along the way.

Ever have to bring a family member in for a Friday show and tell? Ever have your family abdicate and all you have left to take is grumpy, old grandpa who seems to complain about everything there is to complain about? He doesn't like modern gizmos and gadgets, he has no hobbies, doesn't speak another language or play a musical instrument, he uses an old typewriter to type on and hasn't bought a new pair of pants in ten years! He hates haircuts, doctors and any sort of ice cream that isn't vanilla. What can you say about such a boring, uncool guy in the one minute allotted to you?

Downcast and mortified the narrator (an unnamed boy) has no alternative but to bring his grandpa to school, present him to his class and try to get through this horrific experience. The boy approaches his assigned presentation like he is headed for the gallows. Mackintosh draws him alone and in grey, while his classmates laugh and shout in colour on the opposite page. The illustrations are a combination of ink, pencil drawings, paper collages and photos. He uses a great color pallet, just perfect for the storyline.

What the boy discovers is truly remarkable. His grandpa starts spinning stories that mesmerize the whole class. Grandpa can eat pickled onions right out of the pickle jar, he can catch a fly with his bare hands and let it go again, he has a rubber band ball that is twenty-eight years old and he even has a cool tattoo!!! The class in enamoured with Frank's grandpa. He is a big hit and they treat him like a rock star.

We are reminded that every one has a story and (a life) before they become a grandpa. It is so worthwhile to bridge that generation gap and take time to sit down and listen to the elders around you. These older people are filled with wisdom and knowledge that I am sure they would love to share with you. Make an effort to find out what stories are buried deep inside your grandad (or grandma) and you will be much richer for knowing them.
