Grandpa Pike has done it again. The title of this book certainly caught my eye so I just had to read it. The book is full of interesting short stories depicting his many life experiences. I was very curious to know why the book has such a weird and wonderful title. You should too!
I was excited to see that Grandpa Pike had released another book. You’ll read in this book about his life and all the experiences while on his journeys. Some of my favourite topics that I read from the book include: How his family survived the Good Old Days, Religion, different people in his life he has met and the lovely stories to accompany the relationships between them.
In the book, he shares many heartwarming experiences while travelling on the road for his sales jobs. Grandpa Pike is a proud husband and father, this is evident in the many times he so proudly mentions them as you read along.
I would surely recommend this book and I truly loved reading his short stories. The short stories are a wonderful light read for any person young or old to enjoy. This book could make a lovely Christmas gift and would surely please the reader in your life.
