When Grandpa Was the Moon, Hardback Book

When Grandpa Was the Moon Hardback

Illustrated by Francisco Fonseca



When Grandpa leaves, where does he go? This raw and comforting book will bring a tear to your eye for all the right reasons.

An essential book for anyone with grandparents. Gazing from an elevated window above the cityscape, a child stares into the warmly-lit windows of their neighbouring apartments.

Anchored above the rows of civilisation is the wise but weathered stare of the moon.

Is their Grandpa up there? Indeed, he is, and little ones will let their imagination take flight as they wander through the endearing world that their precious grandparent calls home. Poetic, raw and heartfelt, When Grandpa Was the Moon helps little ones everywhere understand that a loved one may be gone, but they're still here in many ways.
