My Grandpa by Marta Altes

The Lovereading4Kids comment

My Grandpa is getting old. But that's how he is, and that's why I love him.


My Grandpa by Marta Altes

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. A stunning picture book debut from Marta Altes, an exciting new writing and illustrating talent.
