 From the publisher:   The Amazing Adventures of Thomas and Erin with Granddad - Market Day, a children's picture book by John Vasey, tells of young Thomas and Erin's trip to town with their beloved Granddad. Inspired by Vasey's experiences with his own grandchildren, the real-life Thomas and Erin, the book tells of the children's fun with their beloved grandfather in simple words and bright, colorful illustrations.

For Erin and Thomas, today is the most special kind of day there is. You see, today is a Granddad day, and those days are always the most fun of all. 

Full of extraordinary illustrations, this joyous and beautifully simple story is sweetly evocative of the joy of spending a day with a grandfather.  Simply told and elegantly constructed, The Amazing Adventures of Thomas and Erin with Grandad - Market Day is not only an endearing story but also a tender ode to the timeless connection between children and their grandfather.

The Amazing Adventures of Thomas and Erin With Grandad - Market Day is a sweet and short tale suitable for children ages five and under.  The market is closed so Grandpa improvises, taking his two grandchildren around town to different venues where they experience new adventures.  On this outing, they visit a bookstore, a flower shop, take a walk through a park and, finally, walk by the river as the sun is setting.  Outings with grandparents are joyous, no matter how they are spent and this story emphasizes this.  It is apparent that grandfather received as much joy from this outing as the grandchildren did.  At the end of the book is a place for the child to draw a picture of his/her own grandfather.

A cute bedtime read and a special book to share with grandpa, I rate this a 3.5/5.

About the author:  John Vasey is the technical director for live music productions and is currently touring the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber through Southeast Asia.  He is the author of Concert Tour Production Management and Concert Sound and Lighting Systems.  He is also a painter, a photographer, and the proud grandfather of three-and-a-half year-old Thomas and two year-old Erin.
