YEAH!!! Mad Grandad's back and this is his best adventure yet. Pretty scary stuff, this is the Borrowers with malice, and makes for a great yarn for young readers gaining confidence in tackling full-length books.

With his big square glasses, bulbous nose and free-flying eyebrows, McGann’s Grandad is a truly original creation. The illustrations, drawn from interesting perspectives, are imaginative and full of detail
