Reviews

  • He might look just like a regular grandad, although Grandude is anything but.

    When his grandchildren come to stay, he pulls out all the stops to make sure "Chillers" Lucy, Tom, Em and Bob have an incredible time.

    This includes days at the beach where they ride on flying fish.

    But how does he do it? Surely there's magic in the air?

    A charming tale from the music legend - with the most glorious illustrations that will be enjoyed by old and young.
