Brilliantly funny, but at the same time dark
10 July 2018
I have always read to my Grandsons, 3 and 8 when they come to stay, but now my eight year old and I read a chapter each, and this book had us in absolute stitches.
However, it became very dark when we realised Granny had cancer and was going to die. We were both in tears, but it gave us the opportunity to discuss illness in older people and death, and to say all the things we could ever need to say.
He was always appreciative of Granpa and me but now even more so - for as long as it lasts....
I would really recommend this book to everyone with 7/8 year olds.
