'If all the world were springtime
I would replant my Grandad's birthday's
so that he would never get old'.
A stunningly beautiful book about missing someone.
From springtime to winter the pages travel with a girl and her Grandad, laughing smiling, sharing stories, Indian sweets and home-made toys. A book full of happiness.
Then one day his chair is empty, with only his slippers and a new notebook, but no Grandad.
In the wonderful illustrations the girl takes the new notebook and writes her memories and draws her best pictures, all of them with her Grandad.
This is just a beautiful book from Joseph Coehlo and Allison Colpoys, published by Lincoln Children's Books. The words and illustrations match the essence of the story; that happiness can be found again even if you lose someone very close.
Couldn't resist adding a video...
