Grandad's Island

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Review

When Syd and Grandad go through the door in the attic, they find themselves on a sailing ship. They sail to an island covered with jungle. They explore, have fun and make friends with all the animals. It's the most perfect place, but Syd knows it will soon be time to go home. Grandad is having such a good time though, that he decides to stay. Syd will miss Grandad very much and has to steer the ship home all by himself.

A subtle story about love and loss enhanced by delightful illustrations.
