How to Babysit a Grandad

Publisher: Hodder Children’s

A boy gives his account of looking after grandad when the parents go out - as, of course, grandad couldn't possibly be babysitting him.

The boy takes his grandad for a walk and even lets him in on his secret games: avoiding pavement cracks and blowing on dandelion puffs, just for starters.

Of course, they end up having a whale of a time, with games aplenty and ice cream for snacks. Since grandad was so good, he might just babysit him again…

This very sweet and funny story will have you grinning from ear to ear. It really gets under a child's skin, and it's a joy to see things from their perspective.

The lovely, affectionate illustrations are the cherry on top - revealing a roly-poly, bespectacled grandad who often nods off.

The book also has loads of useful tips and games for children to occupy themselves whenever they're left with a babysitter - whether it's grandad or not!
