When the little boy woke up, he found that his grandmother was sick and in hospital, so he decided to go on the road alone to visit his grandmother. Worrying about his grandmother and rushing alone scared him, but the little memories of being with him made him brave. At the same time, the adults who found the little boy missing also went out together to find him...
The author shows the psychological activities of a child in the face of fear in a way that intertwines reality and fantasy, and tells a touching affection for grandparent and grandchild.

"On the day I went to see Granny, I encountered a lot of wind and rain, and I also encountered scary monitor lizards, but I was not afraid, because I had a lot to tell Granny immediately. Those words, others may not believe, but Granny will believe!"

From the back cover

Dedicated to my sincere family members

Companionship seems ordinary, but it has unexpected inspiration.
On the day that I visited my Granny, there was a big storm and a scary lizard but I was not afraid.
What supported me was that I had many things to tell my Granny.
What I’d tell may be not convinced by others, but Granny would always believe me!
