Cultural notes from the author:
Grandparents often play a special role in a child’s life. My grandma had always saved me from all sorts of troubles during my childhood. I remember thinking how ‘magical’ my grandma was. Sakura’s grandma in this book is the same. Readers will have fun finding out how she deals with the melted chocolate Sakura brought for her.
