Rosa's Singing Grandfather

Written by Leon Rosselson

Illustrated by Caroline Binch, Norman Young

Rosa's Singing Grandfather Synopsis

Rosa doesn't have a dad but she does have a grandfather and a grandfather who sings at that! When Granddad sings on the beach or at Rosa's carol concert or in hospital or at the zoo, Rosa feels a bit embarrassed but no one else seems to mind and Rosa ends up being very proud of her granddad. A heart-warming and funny book about the relationship between young and old.

Rosa's Singing Grandfather Press Reviews

There is very little good writing for this age range, this is an outstanding example of how it should be done. A short book but the sheer quality of the writing make it an immensely satisfying read. The Carnegie Judges
