When Owen goes to visit his grandfather in the country, neither is sure how to behave. The little boy wants to climb the mountain, but the old man doesn’t feel up to it. When eventually they set off on the adventure to reach the peak, they are slightly unsure, but when they come back down, they return as friends. They have learned something—not only about each other, but also about themselves. Malachy Doyle’s most recent books are Bold Boy and Sleepy Pendoodle. Giles Greenfield is the illustrator of Chaucer the Cat and the Animal Pilgrims.
