After eating, Thuli and Grandmother sit under the tree, and Grandmother tells Thuli stories.

When the stories are finished, Grandmother gives Thuli some cookies and a glass of milk, fresh and creamy.

Thuli’s parents bring the cookies with them when they visit. Chocolate chip cookies. Thuli’s favourite.

Special always looks at Thuli as she eats her cookies. Thuli wants to share her cookies with Special, but Grandmother gives her only enough for herself.
