KIRKUS REVIEW

 During an idyllic visit with grandmother in what looks like coastal Maine, a little girl wonders how she resembles Gammy, as everyone says she does (it's the smile, she decides). The two also share confidences: the child misses the kitten that disappeared last summer; Gammy still misses Grandpa. With neither the artistry nor the energy of Anderson's Stina's Visit (p. 734)- -but the story is sweet without being saccharine, while Young's watercolors nicely evoke the lovely setting and warm relationship. (Picture book. 4-8)
