Brendan has packed his little red wagon and is all set to go up the hill to Grandma's house. He has a pot of tea, chocolate chip cookies, milk and sugar, and teacups for two. He heads out--hobbledy-clop, hobbledy-clop--over the bumpy dirt road. Along the way, he meets some friends who want to join the fun: Atlas the dog, Beatrice the cat, Corabelle the horse, and Dudley the snake. Pat Brisson's simple story of a visit between a boy and his grandmother is captured in joyful illustrations by Maxie Chanbless. What begins as a quiet tea party turns into an exuberant and thoroughly silly afternoon.
