“A gently magical story about bidding farewell to a grandparent, Davies’ vibrant palette infuses the story with a hopeful spirit” – Huffington Post
“Benji Davies didn’t invent the melancholy sea story, but he sure knows how to deliver one…’Grandad’s Island’ metaphorically and movingly re-imagines the experience of loss” – Boston Globe

I highly recommend it - it's absolutely fantastic story. My daughter has really engaged which is something that doesn't happen often. Honestly this is adorable – from the art to the story concept too. The story itself is well thought out to get kids to interact with the book.
