Description

From Patricia MacLachlan, beloved author of the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain and Tall, comes a touching story that teaches children how to look at the world in different ways.

John's favorite house is his grandfather's--not because it is fancy or new but because he sees it through his Grandpa's eyes. Grandpa is blind, and so when John visits him he gets to see things from a new perspective. If he closes his eyes, everything comes alive through sound and touch. This house is the place where John gets to experience the special way Grandpa sees and moves in the world.
