Grandfather Whisker’s Table

By Eun-Jeong Jo

Illustrated by Bimba Landmann. 

Review by Westley.

This story is about a little boy and his dad a long time ago.  The little boy buys a toy for his baby brother.  The dad goes to one of the first bankers and the little boy ask the banker to hold his toy for his baby brother so he doesn’t lose it at the Palio di Siena horse race.  Then he loses the receipt to get the toy back!

I liked when he lost the receipt and the banker gave back the toy even though he didn’t have the receipt since it was a present for his baby brother.  I like the pictures and the artwork because they were pretty.  They had lots of detail.

I think people who like history would like this book.   This is a story about a time that was real, but the people aren’t real.
