Illustrated by Elihaou Eric Bokobza
Published by Reycraft Books

When Savta arrives for a visit from Israel, her grandson is excited about their upcoming Sunday together. Savta promises him a special gift. What could be better?

As they walk through the art show, Savta shares stories from her childhood about smelly fish, superhero costumes, and yummy donuts. But the grandson never gets that special gift. Or does he?
