Description

Janet Majerus (Author). I think it's a really cute book, to be honest, as well as a heartfelt and interesting adventure. While it's not exactly recommended for 10 and under, I think any kid older than that should be able to handle the slightly more thematic parts.

Janet Majerus (Author). I enjoyed Sarah's devotion to her grandfather; it truly made me smile to see a kid love her grandfather so much. I liked Sarah a lot; she's clever and smart. She's willing to listen to people, but in the end she made her own choices.

I read the book "Grandpa and Frank" by Janet Majerus before I saw the CBS television movie "Home to Stay

I read the book "Grandpa and Frank" by Janet Majerus before I saw the CBS television movie "Home to Stay. The TV movie has a rather happy ending, while the book ended "Here we go again!" The book was set in western Illinois not long after World War II. It depicts everyday life in the 1940s with drugstore soda fountains and boarding houses. The truck in the book was a Model A Ford. Obviously it wouldn't pay to set the movie version in the 1940s, so the film makers set it in the 1970s and titled the movie "Home to Stay.

Janet Majerus once told CA: "I am a product of small town, middle America. Even though I have lived in large metropolitan areas in the East (Boston and Washington), I find my writing keeps returning to the Midwest and, in particular, to the people who live in its small towns and rural areas. Although Majerus's first novel, Grandpa and Frank, was enormously successful and ultimately made into a television movie in the 1970s, the author would eventually leave novel writing behind.

I think it's a really cute book, to be honest, as well as a heartfelt and interesting adventure. While it's not exactly recommended for 10 and under, I think any kid older than that should be able to handle the slightly more thematic parts.

I enjoyed Sarah's devotion to her grandfather; it truly made me smile to see a kid love her grandfather so much. I liked Sarah a lot; she's clever and smart. She's willing to listen to people, but in the end she made her own choices. She was mature most of the time, and she developed a lot as a character. For a twelve year old, that's really impressive!

As for the adventure itself, it's not exactly the most believable one, but I think it serves the purpose. The journey, for me, is actually symbolizing what Sarah is willing to do for her grandpa. She's willing to trust Joey, a fellow kid, to drive a Model-A without getting caught for over a hundred miles, among others. Sarah's journey is quite an amusing one.

As for Frank, he's the perfect antagonist. I hated him so much! (That's the point though....)
