On his last day before retirement, Mr. Frank is sewing the most wonderful outfit of his long career. Who could it be for? In all his years working as a tailor, Mr. Frank has made all kinds of clothes. From the practical uniforms of the 1940s to the wild and weird designs of the 1960s and 1970s, he has seen (and sewn) just about everything. But today's project is especially close to Mr. Frank's heart. With its use of textiles and sensitive period detail, Irene Luxbacher's artwork is the perfect complement to her understated text. The result is a story that children and grandparents can share with equal delight.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A USBBY Outstanding International Book
A Cooperative Children's Book Center Choice

"Outstanding mixed-media collages and a thoughtful text create a distinctive book that rises far above most tributes to grandparental love. . . . a perfect book." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Beautifully written and filled with visual details of days gone by, this small treasure is waiting to be shared again and again with a young grandchild or with any young child." School Library Journal

"Luxbacher is pure genius, weaving in a half century-plus of fashion history into a glowing celebration of family." BookDragon

"A cozy read-aloud, particularly for grandparents and their grandchildren." Booklist

"This quiet story is a wonderful homage to grandparents everywhere who delight in pleasing their grandchildren." Library Media Connection
"In short, the outfit Mr. Frank was making today was perfect. So perfect, that after sewing the last stich, Mr. Frank knew there was nothing else he wanted to do. No suit, no dress, no costume, no tutu would ever seem special enough to thread another needle for." from the book
