Publisher Description

A very special picture book about the bond between little girls and their grandmothers. When Nana makes pancakes, I spread the jam. I smooth it right to the edges with the back of my spoon, until it looks like a giant orange sun. Then we roll them up tightly, dust them with sugar and lick our fingers. In this beautifully written picture book a little girl goes to the ends of the earth to find real apricot jam for her beloved grandmother.
