Author:  Morris Gleitzman

Pearl had never seen so much sadness on one face.

Not even on Winston's the night Dad left.

Gran's face was so creased Pearl was worried it would start cracking too.

Gran stared at the water wings for ages.

Then suddenly she bent forward into the torchlight and stuffed them angrily into her box of junk.

Her eyes, Pearl saw, were full of tears.
