Genie's summer is full of surprises. The first is that he and his big brother, Ernie, are leaving Brooklyn for the very first time to spend the summer with their grandparents all the way in Virginia - in the COUNTRY! The second surprise comes when Genie figures out that their grandfather is blind. Thunderstruck, and being a curious kid, Genie peppers Grandpop with questions about how he covers it so well (besides wearing way cool Ray-Bans).

We listened to this on a car trip with our 8 1/2 year old son. It's a beautiful story of 2 brothers who leave Brooklyn to stay with their parents for a month while their parents work on their own relationship. The characters are sweet, the lesson is good, and it moves along nicely. We all enjoyed it.
