Grandpa’s Dear Old Girl

Happy publication day Friday 3rd September 2021 to Grandpa’s Dear Old Girl by Felicity Fair Thompson and illustrated by Carolyn Pavey.

‘A story full of warmth and drama for all ages. Unputdownable.’

Michelle Magorian, author of Goodnight Mister Tom

‘A tender exploration of family, our ever-changing world and the enduring power of the sea. A perfect book to read snuggled up by the fire with a child.’

Millie’s grandpa Big Frank is the Lighthouse Keeper and from it he can see everything. When Jack-o-the-Lamp comes to the island to automate the light, Millie is very worried.

What will her grandpa do now without the tall round tower he calls his dear old girl?

A big storm is brewing but when Big Frank and Millie try to warn them, the fishermen take no notice. But they need Big Frank’s help when the storm sweeps in, and he in turn needs Millie’s when the lighthouse lamp goes out.

A children’s chapter book in a larger new format filled with atmospheric black and white illustrations – perfect for adventure story fans.
