Synopsis

A hilarious and touching swapping places story from the creator of Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, Morag Hood.

What do you do when your Grandad starts acting VERY much like a penguin? Find out in this brilliantly funny and heartwarming story from talented author and illustrator, Morag Hood. Boys and girls alike will love Morag's witty, sweet and brilliantly surreal depiction of everyday settings and situations in this fish-out-of-water story with a difference.

Morag's lino cut artwork is gorgeously bold and stylish and her illustrative talent and keen eye for design won her a place as runner up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration.

When Grandad was a Penguin is perfect for sharing with children (and grandads) young and old, and its beautifully debossed hardback cover and extra-special high quality paper make this an excellent gift for penguin lovers.
