Grandpa Is Here

By Tanya Rosie

Illustrated by Chuck Groenink

A warm, authentic celebration of family reunions, told through the eyes of a kind-hearted little girl who shows us that love and laughter can overcome any language barrier.

GRANDPA IS HERE! With his bristly moustache and suitcase smelling of Persian spice, Grandpa and granddaughter have so much that they want to see and do together. He's brought walnuts picked from his trees at home, and sparkly saffron to make yellow rice. His granddaughter shows him all her most favourite things: the mountaintops, the tunnel she discovered, the horse in the field. If only Grandpa could stay longer, then he could see the spring. But when time together is limited, it feels all the more sweet and special. A tender and stunningly illustrated picture book, rich in the charm of child-like wonder and the magical bonds between families – even those spread out across the world.
