Grampa was okay this morning. Because he slept so nice. Sometimes when the slippage is on he doesn’t sleep so calm. Sleeps like a freight train. Last night he didn’t know who I was. Sleeps like a freight train is morning very well. Revelly! Revelly! he shouted me awake. Revelly! Up, Martin! Up, my lad! Clay lies still but blood’s a rover;Breath’s a ware that will not keep. Up lad; when the journey’s overThere’ll be time enough for sleep. He has called out this poem many times to get me up. I know it off by heart. Grampa Rip loves poems

Brian Doyle is one of Canada’s best-loved children’s authors. His award-winning books have been published internationally, as well as being made into films and. It was as a young boy growing up in Ottawa’s Lowertown, and in the Gatineau Hills, that he picked up his love of stories and anecdotes. His keen memories of childhood, the settings, the people and the atmosphere, figure prominently in his work. His American honours include being selected for the Horn Book’s Fanfare List, the ABA Pick of the Lists and the New York Public Library Best Book for the Teenage. Brian is a fourth-generation Ottawan.

Spring has arrived, and Martin O’Boy has finally found a true home with Grampa Rip and a job at the Pure Spring soft drink company, though he lied about his age to get it. However, not everything is perfect. Martin feels bad about lying to kindly Mr. Mirsky, Pure Spring's owner, and sometimes Grampa Rip’s brain goes very far away. There's the mysterious yet familiar man in the park. There are Martin’s memories. Igor Gouzenko, the famous Soviet defector, has unexpectedly reappeared. And Martin learns that his very peculiar, dirty-mouthed workmate and boss, Randy, is a blackmailing crook. When Martin falls in love with the beautiful Gerty McDowell, whose old grandfather is being robbed by Randy — with Martin forced to act as an accomplice — Martin’s happiness, his sense of duty, and his love for Gerty collide. It won't be easy, but he has to find a way through all of it and preserve the joy of spring. This sequel to Boy O’Boy is Brian Doyle at his brilliant best, deftly blending deeply serious, even tragic moments with great humor and pathos.
