Phoebe is a little girl who happens to have special grandparents. Her grandmother held a lot of love for her, despite her quick temper. Her grandfather goes through life making those unique inventions. Sometimes they worked, and other times there were disasters. Phoebe loved to go to the golf game with her grandfather. One day, she was surprised when she found animals and a golf ball talking to her. They were trying to convince her to go on a rescue mission to save a golf ball and reunite the ball siblings. Grab Grandpa and Phoebe’s Amazing Adventures by Neil Kelly to go on adventures with Phoebe, her grandparents, and her new unusual friends and see if they manage to make a good plan and get the mission accomplished.

I like that the story was long and had many details. It creates a world with its small details to engage the kids in it. There are small events that happen throughout the story in addition to the main plot. It is exciting and keeps the engagement of the young reader through the long story. I loved that in the story, the characters faced many obstacles and had to get over them. It encourages problem-solving skills and enhances the creativity of the kids. I also liked that it introduced unconditional love between family members, regardless of their flaws.

I didn't find anything that I disliked throughout the book. The story was interesting and had some good values. The characters were introduced well. The book received exceptional editing. I didn't notice any errors or mistakes while reading. Therefore, I rate Grandpa and Phoebe’s Amazing Adventures by Neil Kelly five out of five stars. I recommend the book to kids who are old enough to read a long book and follow up on the events of a long adventure. I also recommend it to parents who want to spend a good time reading to their children and sharing some adventures with them.

A great choice! In fact, your review encouraged me to buy the book.
The idea of writing a children's book that carries moral values and showcases the unconditional love of parents is a wonderful and impactful one. Such stories significantly contribute to shaping children's awareness and teaching them noble human values. These stories help children understand the importance of caring for others and show them how unconditional love can be a driving force in their lives.

O course she was surprised by the golf ball and the animals talking to her. Anybody would be. The book, however, seems to be centered on Phoebe and her search. I think that it would keep kids interested and encourage them to do what seems impossible. Thanks!
