When Grandad Was a Penguin

Written by Morag Hood

When Grandad Was a Penguin Synopsis

Last time I went to see Grandad, he seemed a little different. What do you do when your Grandad starts acting VERY much like a penguin? Find out in this brilliantly funny and heartwarming story from talented author and illustrator, Morag Hood. Boys and girls alike will love the witty, sweet and brilliantly surreal depiction of everyday settings and situations in this fish-out-of-water story with a difference. When Grandad was a Penguin is perfect for sharing with children (and grandads) young and old. Morag Hood's artwork is gorgeously bold and stylish and her illustrative talent and keen eye for design won her a place as runner up in the Macmillan Prize for Illustration. Since graduating she has created such brilliant books as Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, I Am Bat and The Steves.
