When Charley Met Granpa

Written by Amy Hest

Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

When Charley Met Granpa Synopsis

Dear Granpa ... When are you coming to see Charley? Bring a big suitcase and stay a long time and I'll meet you at the station... Readers fell in love with Henry and his truly adorable new puppy, Charley, in Charley's First Night. In this beautiful follow-up title, Henry hopes - very much - that his granpa, who is coming for a visit, will love Charley just as much as he does (a lot). But Granpa is a little wary of dogs ... he's never been friends with one before. Luckily, Charley isn't any ordinary little puppy, he's a very smart one and this could be the beginning of a very beautiful friendship indeed...

When Charley Met Granpa Press Reviews

All of the scenes have a timeless, classic look - some might say old-fashioned, but it works. The endpapers, displaying yet more images of Charley, but in quieter mood, in muted blue tones, further enhance the presentation of this delightful story. * The Children's Books Ireland Magazine. *
