The wonderful grandmother whom listeners saw through the eyes of a young boy in The Cookcamp reaches out to him when he is fourteen, offering him a haven from his harsh and painful family life. She arranges a summer job for him on the farm where she is a cook for bachelor brothers Gunnar and Olaf. Farm life offers the camaraderie and the routine of hard work, as well as good food, peaceful evenings spent making music together, and even dancing lessons. Life with Alida gives the boy strength and faith in himself, drawing him away from the edge and into the center of life.

    " Again, Gary Paulsen scores. Read this book and "The Quilt" in just a couple of hours. Both tender stories that move the soul. "

    " This is a charming story with a sweet ending. However, it really bugged me that Paulsen didn't give themain character a name. He is called "the boy" throughout the book. I found that this kept me from really caring about him. It is a good short story though. Paulsen paints the scenery well. "
