The Lovereading4Kids comment
In this new picture book series from Phoenix Yard Books, Lollipop and Grandpa are intrepid explorers, always on the lookout for the next adventure. In this stylish picture book a trip to the swimming pool offers all sorts of opportunities for excitement. Lollipop is learning to swim and Grandpa is there with helpful advice. There are important things to learn like floating and kicking, but lots to discover too, like sunken treasure, a giant octopus and even a knee-wobbling, jaw-dropping, tummy-fluttering, absolutely GINORMOUS blue whale.
Underpinning the Lollipop and Grandpa series is the relationship between an intelligent, inquisitive little girl and her mischievous grandparent who understands the workings of a child’s mind brilliantly. All the stories combine the familiar trials and tribulations of being 4-years-old with great fantasy adventures arising from ordinary, everyday identifiable situations.
This is the second Lollipop and Grandpa adventure. To check out the earlier one and others to come in due course then click here.
Lollipop and Grandpa Go Swimming by Penelope Harper
Lollipop is learning to swim and Grandpa just loves to swim. In Lollipop’s first encounter with the swimming pool they stumble across naughty pirate, sunken treasure, giant octopus and an even more ginormous waterslide that looks and behaves suspiciously like a big blue whale...
Author Penelope Harper was inspired by her own Grandpa. She says, “He always wore his trousers too high up. He had hair sprouting out of pretty much everywhere but he had the most brilliant sense of humour and of adventure. He really inspired me and my brothers to find adventure and excitement in the little things”.
