Mad Grandad

From angry mermaids to space aliens Lenny and his mad grandad are always getting into scary situations! Exciting (and slightly daft) adventures.

'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' Books Ireland

'The illustrations work very well and really add to the atmosphere. McGann’s style is direct and very readable, and is excellent for the six-to eight-year-old early reader, or for reading to younger children.' RTE Guide
