From the creator of Nickelodeon’s hit series Shimmer and Shine comes a sweet and imaginative picture book about a little girl who spends the day with her grandfather and learns more about who he is.

Every summer, Miriam spends a week at her Babajoon and Mamanjoon’s house. It’s her favorite part of summer because every day with her grandparents is an adventure. But when coins fall out of Babajoon’s pocket as he’s getting ice cream, Miriam finds one coin that doesn’t look like the rest—a gold one unlike Miriam has ever seen before.

Suddenly, she starts to notice certain things about her Babajoon. He can talk to parrots. He speaks with codewords. He trades crystal treasures with his friends. Could her Babajoon be…a pirate?

Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
The author’s love of the time she spent with her grandparents is evident on every page. Her Babajoon takes her for a fun day shopping, and along the way she sees pieces of his past in Iran that he carries for sentimental value. However, being young, she sees the foreign money, language, and food as a clear indication he is a secret pirate and her imagination takes flight. The illustrations are vibrant and fans of the show Shimmer and Shine will see that style influence the full-bodied imaginings of the girl. I love the awe and love the illustrations convey to support the story of the love and fun the girl has with her grandfather.
