Nine-year-old Leo loves his strong-willed, funny, and quirky Grandma Carol, even though her memory problems create all sorts of adventures.
After a fire breaks out in Grandma Carol’s living room, Leo’s Mom and Dad decide to hire a caregiver to live with her. Leo is no longer allowed to spend as much time with her as he wants to. But Carol, who has always been a free spirit, is not willing to lose her independence: she plays tricks, hides, and even goes so far as to run away from her caregiver.
Then, one night, a thief with extra-long arms arrives at Grandma’s apartment building…

Tzofit Ofengenden’s comic novel, told from Leo’s innocent but sharp-eyed point of view, is well-observed and cleverly plotted, with wonderfully surreal touches.

Tzofit Ofengenden was born and raised in Israel and would have lived her whole life there if it had not been for a fateful scholarship to Tübingen university where she earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy. One adventure led to another and after Germany she moved to Australia, China, and since 2010, lives in the USA. She has taught at Brandeis University, Jinan University in China, Loyola University and currently works and teaches at Tulane’s School of Medicine, New Orleans. 

She is the mother of two rowdy boys who inspired this book.
