Review

Grandpa is getting forgetful. But his memories of flying war planes are sharp as bayonets. Grandpa and Jack love watching World War II films, eating Spam a la Custard and visiting the Imperial War Museum. But when Grandpa goes missing and Jack finds him stowed away in the Museum's spitfire, Jack's parents decide it's time for him to move to Twilight Towers.

Sneaking in to visit Grandpa under cover, Jack spots the scary matron forging the residents' wills, discovers a room full of pills to keep them asleep and another piled high with ominous coffins, it's up to Jack to help Grandpa escape!

A daring, madcap, blockbusting adventure, full of humour, history, bravery, compassion and affection, from award-winning, best-selling David Walliams.
