Lou passe tous ses samedis avec Grand-Papa et Papi. Ils se rendent à la bibliothèque main dans la main, comme une guirlande de personnages en papier. Grand-Papa lit des livres sur la science et le design, Papi écoute des disques de rock and roll et Lou va de l’un à l’autre. Mais un jour, tout bascule. Papi fait une chute qui a des conséquences terribles: il sera confiné à un fauteuil roulant pour toujours, tout le temps. Incapable d’accepter son état, il se renferme et ne sort plus de sa chambre. En entendant Grand-Papa essayer d’égayer Papi, Lou a une idée. En utilisant des compétences qu’il a apprises de Grand-Papa et avec un peu d’aide des voisins, Lou élabore un plan pour Papi.
“Smith’s characters are real and honest…Kerrigan’s digital artwork…is both engaging and touching.”

“Whatever message a young child gets out of this book, it will be a powerful one… This book is an excellent choice for the pre-school land the early elementary-aged child.”

“Je suis tombée en amour avec la douceur des portraits, les détails et les couleurs pastel. Vraiment, c’est du bonbon pour les yeux. Le récit est chouette car il est vraiment d’actualité…Le récit nous amène aussi sur les thèmes de la résilience face aux difficultés.”

“Un album plein de poésie et très émouvant. Textes et illustrations sont très réussis. L’homosexualité est abordée en second plan, ce qui aide à la banaliser. Ce livre est aussi très original, puisqu’il aborde les thèmes de« l’homo-grand-parentalité », et de la perte d’autonomie dans un couple homo, thèmes qui ne sont pas traités pour le moment dans l’édition française. Existe également en anglais.Coup de cœur du comité de lecture.”

"A positive and realistic representation of both a wheelchair user and an elderly, interracial gay male couple. "

– Kirkus Reviews

"Accompanied by Kerrigan's muted, pastel-coloured illustrations… Smith's narrative creates a fully rounded and sympathetic storyline with characters with whom youngsters will likely be able to identify…A delicious, enjoyable, and necessary narrative for modern families with a non-normative makeup. Highly Recommended."

– CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"A fond and sympathetic story, told with attractive particulars, of the challenging pitfalls of aging and their effects on the family…[A] welcome reminder that even after a daunting change, family can still be family."

"The bond between Lou and [their] loving grandparents shines through in this unique story. The matter-of-factness of their relationship is worth noting, as this type of representation for same-sex couples will help children appreciate the diversity that exists in many families, without overstating it."
