Book giveaway: Grandma Bird

Grandma Bird book giveaway

A tale of compassion, bravery and unexpected adventure, Grandma Bird is the new book by Benji Davies. We have 15 copies to give away to celebrate Grandparents Day on 7 October.

Noi isn’t at all sure about spending the summer at Grandma’s house. Grandma boils seaweed for soup, and there’s not much to do on the tiny island where she lives where the wind cuts in and the grass grows sideways. But that’s before Noi gets swept up in a dramatic rescue that will mark the beginning of a touching new friendship.
