This picture book for adults, with vibrant colors and whimsical images, tells the story of a long and happy marriage. Grow Old With Me captures the journey of a marriage: from the beginning (falling “in-like” and then “in-love”) to the birth of their child (seeing cows as “sisters in milkship”) to their middle years (“high wire artists”) and through their older years (“we still have our dreams”). After more than fifty years, they look at one another with a sense of wonder and tender trepidation—“How did we get to be so old?”
