Grandparents




The perfect gift for Christmas, this celebration of grandparents is a follow-up to bestsellers Mums and Dads

Grandparents. – what would we do without them? They come in all shapes and sizes but with their wise words and kind ways they can be a source of inspiration and encouragement like no other.

Here Britain’s national treasures share their personal anecdotes about grandparents. Some recollect fond childhood memories of their Granny or Granddad, while others share with us their own experiences of what it is like to be a grandparent.

Both hugely entertaining and heart warming, this wonderful celebration is the perfect gift for a much-loved grandparent.
