DADA'S USELESS PRESENT
Description: Dada may be celebrating his 82nd birthday but he still considers himself spry, until a seemingly thoughtful gift from his son tells him otherwise. Nalini Sorensen beautifully captures the spirit of aging grandparents who refuse to cede their independence. Charming watercolour illustrations by the hugely talented Allen Shaw enliven this buoyant tale.
