Life savers can come in surprising shapes! Hannah's grandmother never jeeps presents, such as the furry slippers Hannah and her parents brought on their last visit downriver to the candy store in the Bronx, New York. Sensible Grandma says about any gift, "Thank you very much, but it's not a necessity." This visit to her grandparents--her first on the bus by herself--Hannah brings a surprise of her own choosing: a bright silver whistling teakettle with a little red bird on the spout so Grandma won't have to keep running back to the kitchen behind the store to check whether the tea water's boiling. "A necessity" if Hannah has ever seen one! On her first night with her grandparents, two suspicious characters ("they weren't regular") come to the store for more than malteds. They are robbers. And the teakettle, sounding very much like a policeman's whistle, saves the day--hilariously and animatedly in the robust, rollicking illustrations. Grandma decides to keep Hannah's present after all. "That little bird on the kettle maybe saved our life!" she says. And life is a necessity.
