Jutta Bauer’s bio

Grandpa's Angel

author/illustrator: Jutta Bauer

Grandpa loves to tell stories about his past. There was the time he was almost run over by a bus, the time he made a big dog cower with just one look, and all those scary street corners he passed by unscathed. From climbing the highest trees to surviving World War II and starting a family, Grandpa has led an unusually blessed life. But maybe it was more than mere luck that kept him safe. . . .

With gentle visual humor, Jutta Bauer's simple story shows how Grandpa's charmed life may be due to someone special watching over him all along.
