Avi wanted to go shopping with her mother but her mother told her children were not allowed at Tsunami Foods and even if Avi went she would be very bored. She asked Avi to stay at home with her Grandma and finish her homework. Her mom promised to get her a Tsunami lollipop. Later, her Grandma told her they had to drive to Tsunami Foods because her mom had forgotten her wallet. Avi was excited and they went in her grandmother's old car. There was a sign outside that said no children were allowed. She hid under her Grandma's coat and they went inside. Her grandmother told her about olden times when life was simple and how they grew their own vegetables and went to the Farmers' Market instead of fancy supermarkets. Grandma and Avi decide to have fun while her mom was busy at Tsunami Foods. Avi told her mom about her time with Grandma and her mother mentioned a new market called Jungle Safari Store coming to town. Grandma and Avi were excited to go to the new library in town, The Acrobatic Lion Circus Library.
