Every summer, a child visits her seaside Grandad. Holidays with Grandad are always bursting with things to do and witness- but the best thing of all is hearing all about the adventures Grandad shared with Gramps, his partner. Grandad reminisces about Gramp's messiness, clumsiness and also his excellence at so many things. Most of all, he shares stories of their around-the-world adventures in their striped, pink camper van...a van which still lurks in the garage, now looking a little sorry for itself. Can a fix-it granddaughter bring the van and its magic adventures back to life...? A gentle story about loss, a celebration of intergenerational love and in praise of all good road trips. Age 4-7, Hardback 24pp
