My Grandpa is a stunning picture book debut from Marta Altés, an exciting new writing and illustrating talent.
There are lots of kids’ books on parents, brothers and sisters, friends but very few covering the grandparents yet so important in children’s lives.
Grandpa is getting old. But that’s how he is, and that’s why the grandchild loves him.
A moving and memorable book about the very special relationship between an elderly grandfather and his adoring grandson, this unique look at old age through the eyes of a young bear is big-hearted, poignant and beautifully observed.
