The reader will quickly be drawn into an audience of grandchildren who are listening to their grandpa tell them a bedtime story that twists and turns in their mind as if they were on a winding trail interconnecting five generations of their family. Together they discover, in a most captivating and surprising way, the bonding elements of love between those whom we call family. The story takes place when the grandpa was five years old and his own grandfather, Ike, driving a funny old car called a Model A, took him and his two older brothers fishing. It was going to be the best day of his life. The excitement builds as the story comes alive, as if it was happening right at that moment. But then, suddenly a near tragedy takes place. An event the children's grandpa had never shared with them before. When the story ends, and in the still silence of the night, just before their grandpa turns off the light in the treehouse he built for them, all the children are out of their sleeping bags hugging their grandpa and each other. This story is likely to invoke children's interest in the experiences of adults, be it parents, grandparents or extended family members.
