Rusty's grandfather has just died. And Anton, Ruben, and the minister's son all have it in for him. But with his grandfather's broken pocket-watch, two cans of paint, and a little help from his friends, Rusty can do anything! Just as long as nobody's parents find out. The first book in a highly popular, award-winning middle-grade series from Norway, Brown has been sold into twenty-seven languages and is illustrated by the now-familiar and beloved Øyvind Torseter. A fun, satisfying read accompanied by excellent visual storytelling.
