About the Author
From Turner's early interest in huskies, dogsleds, and the Inuit culture came her first book for children, The Haunted Igloo (Houghton Mifflin, 1991). After the book was published, she visited classrooms with a life-size Inuit doll, lecturing students on the importance of reading and writing, and passing out 'polar bear' hugs along with her autograph.
Born and raised in Independence, Missouri, Bonnie Turner was transplanted to Wisconsin in 1984, where she continues work on two other novels.

Even with a disease that can rob an elder of dignity the author gave the grandfather his own special brand of value and charm without down playing the very difficult of job of caring for someone that isn't able to see to his own needs anymore. It wasn't grim, it wasn't sappy .... it was magnificent and inspiring. If I could have given this book ten stars I would have.
Buzz is a typical kid who ends up sharing his room with Grandpa who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, the learning process, outlook, and adventures shared over the summer gives us a heartwarming family story that could happen to any of us, a very good book that I would recommend for anyone whether dealing with Alzheimer's or not, you will not be disappointed.
The basic story of a 12 year old boy,and his family,including Grampa with alzheimers is so moving. It's also intelligently written so that a boy of similiar age can read it,and feel empathy for the characters. I highly recommend this to any age readers! (the part with Grampa in the bath is both hilarious and sad all at the same time, from a 'real kids' point of view)
