What happens when a two-year-old and a 92-year-old join forces and conspire against their primary caregiver? The picture is at times t pretty, but it's always heartwarming and witty.

In between the adventures and misadventures that ensue when the toddler and grandmother become allies, Sikorski learns about patience, the importance of humor and the joy that results from a well-deserved nap.
