(From the publisher):
It's Grampa's birthday! And that means a trip to the city for Gabby and Mama. First there's Mama's city shopping, then a haircut for Gabby, and then--finally--ice skating with Grampa. Gabby can't wait to give Grampa his birthday present, the bright orange mittens she knitted herself, with just a little help from Mama.
But what if Grampa notices the crooked stitches? And what if he doesn't like orange?
And what will Grampa think if Gabby's new, grown-up haircut? What if he doesn't like it? What if he just pretends?
It may be Grampa's birthday, but he's not the only one growing up on this special day filled with surprises for Gabby, Grampa, and Mama.
