Illustrated by Yunroo
In this engaging and humorous story, a young girl has a familiar and common encounter with her Grandma that most young children often have with elderly relatives. It’s time for the yearly reunion dinner with Grandma. She asks the same questions as she would every year. However, we see how this sameness amidst our ever-changing environment makes home and family all the more precious.
