A very special picture book about the love between a little girl and her grandmother
"When Nana makes pancakes, I spread the jam. I smooth it right to the edges with the back of my spoon, until it looks like a giant orange sun. Then we roll them up tightly, dust them with sugar and lick our fingers."
In this beautifully written picture book, a little girl goes to the ends of the earth to find real apricot jam for her beloved grandmother. The text is based on the real story of the author's relationship with her Hungarian grandmother. When Deborah was growing up, her grandmother longed for "real" apricot jam (lekvar), like what she used to eat in Hungary as a little girl. So Deborah vowed that one day she would travel to Hungary and bring back a jar of lekvar for the Nana she adored. And that is what she did, carrying the jar with her as she backpacked throughout Europe, until, finally, delivering it to her Nana.
