Visiting Grandpa is boring for the Young Pups. He just goes on about the things he did in his past; the glorious olden days made all the more glorious in his fading memories. But just when the Young Pups have written him off, Grandpa dazzles them with some astonishing skills perfected in his youth. Grandpa is a force to be reckoned with. He is amazing, remarkable and spectacular. In fact, he can teach the Young Pups some new tricks. Tony Ross's engaging illustrations reveal Grandpa's doggy skills in this warm-hearted story about not underestimating your aged grandparents which all generations will enjoy.
