'With each new title, Pamela Allen still manages to come up with something special for her infant readers; Grandpa and Thomas is one of her best.'Magpies Thomas and Grandpa go the beach. It is an Australian summer. The sun is shining, the gulls are screeching and the sea is singing. Together they build a sandcastle, they have a picnic and they splash in the water. Then at the end of the day, Grandpa takes a sleepy Thomas home. In this lovely picture book for the very young, Pamela Allen gently unfolds the special relationship between grandchild and grandfather.
