Grandad Frank is a real class act, just like this book.

Synopsis

There's more to Frank than meets the eye...A quirky, witty and utterly brilliant new picture book from the creator of Marshall Armstrong is New to our School. Frank is your typical grandad, but no one has a grandad like him...If you had to stand up and talk, for one whole minute, about a member of your family, who would you pick? Everyone else chooses really cool people, like Tom's Uncle Marlon who plays drums in a band, or Hannah's mum with her company car. But there's nothing cool about grandad Frank...or is there? In this hilarious, wise and heart-warming story, awesome new picture book talent David Mackintosh shows with a supreme lightness of touch just how much the older generation has to teach us, and how much fun learning from them can be.

...the story succeeds in its quite original motive of helping children look beyond old age and all that goes with it.
