Synopsis

Grandpa's Guardian Angel by Jutta Bauer

With gentle visual humour, Jutta Bauer's simple story shows how Grandpa's charmed life may be due to someone special watching over him all along. This little boy's grandpa tells him stories whenever he visits. He tells how nothing ever seemed to hurt him. Every morning as a boy, he would run past the big statue of an angel on his way to school, and bullies, buses, high trees, deep lakes - none could touch him. Even through war, hunger and unemployment, and all the strange things life threw at him, Grandpa's angel - though never specifically mentioned - is always at his shoulder, looking out for him.

Reviews

Touching, funny and brilliantly crafted. (Sunday Telegraph)
