Loved it!

Grandpa is in for a big surprise, war has been declared and he had no idea it was coming. A good story, a good moral theme of resolving differences yet being friendly while negotiations are ongoing. The solution was a great one because it involved communication and ideas from all parties.

I had lots of laughs.

All's fair in love and war

Listened to this book on several short car rides with my children (ages 6, 9, 15)....they enjoyed the story which was lighthearted and humorous. I found myself laughing out loud more than once. I would recommend for children as well as family listening time.
