Synopsis

Grace and Family Children's Book by Mary Hoffman

To Grace, family has always meant her Ma, her Nana and her cat, Paw-Paw, so when Papa invites her to visit him in the Gambia, she dreams of finding the kind of family that is idealised in stories. But, as Grace soon finds out, families are what you make them. A warm and delightful follow-up to the international best-seller, Amazing Grace.

Reviews

'Caroline Binch's illustrations of The Gambia are carefully observed and beautifully executed.'

Mary Hoffman's Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me:



I didn't change my surname when I got married.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a garage mechanic.

My husband is half-Indian. His mother was a Parsee, born in Bangalore.

I am learning Italian and would love to have a house in Italy.

I never wear or own anything blue.
