Why doesn’t Berra have a grandfather? And how can he get one?
There are plenty of old men at the retirement home, the narrator suggests.
They go there together to find one—ideally one who eats pig’s trotters, invites you to tea and can teach you to whistle.
Can You Whistle, Johanna? is an international award-winner and classic in many countries by one of the world’s great writers, Ulf Stark and brilliantly illustrated by Anna Höglund.
