What is this picture book about?
When Grandpa leaves the world, where does he go? Adorned with the most incredible illustrations, and impossibly beautiful poetry, this raw and comforting book will bring a tear to your eye for all the right reasons.
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.
Evocative, raw and heartfelt, When Grandpa Was the Moon helps little ones everywhere understand that whilst a loved one may be gone, they're still here in so many ways.
