'This splendid sing-along book is wonderful for pre-school and Early Years children for listening, dancing, then singing and acting out the story.' --Books for Keeps
About the Author
Jemima Lumley is an author and designer. She has previously worked as a designer at Frances Lincoln and Orchard Books, and now lives in Bristol, England with her husband and two children. The Journey Home from Grandpa's is her first title for Barefoot Books. Sophie Fatus is a full-time illustrator and sculptress whose bright and distinctive illustrations have brought her numerous commissions and international critical acclaim. 'I take much inspiration from animals that I love, and I want to give homage to their very strong dignity through my work. I'd like my work to be a peaceful message of solidarity and support, that could help children remember to love and respect each other.' Sophie was born and educated in France and now lives in Florence, Italy. For more than twenty years Fred Penner has been entertaining children and adults alike through a variety of media. A native of Manitoba, Canada, Penner has worn many hats ? from folk-rock singer, television host and home video star to children's book author, UNICEF Canada spokesman, husband and father of four! Penner's deep respect for children has been a driving force behind his work and inspires his energetic live performances. With record sales topping the one million mark, and eleven albums and home videos to his credit, it is no wonder that an entire generation of children know many of his lyrics by heart. In fact, Penner's 'The Cat Came Back' and 'You Can Do It (If You Try)' are such favourites with children that they have become classics, taught and performed in music classes all over the world. Lucky for us, Penner shows no signs of slowing down. He is continuously working to create new songs, hoping to share his music with many generations of children to come.
