My Grandad can draw anything BUT he can't draw hands!

My Grandad can draw anything BUT he can't draw hands!

Author: Neil Sullivan Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/10/2019

It seems all children love scribbling, drawing, colouring-in and expressing themselves through art. Not all children grow out of this passion: Chloe's Grandad, Neil, certainly didn't. Chloe loves nothing better than watching her Grandad scribbling away at the kitchen table. It's like he can draw just about anything, well, anything except hands, that is. Chloe finds it most amusing watching Grandad nearly pulling his hair out with frustration trying to draw hands. They always turn out wobbly! In fact this book was inspired by these real artistic gatherings of Chloe and her Grandad at their kitchen table, happily drawing. Steve Burke has brought this funny and charming story to life with his hilarious caricatures of Chloe and her Grandad. See how his beautiful illustrations and the author's hilarious rhymes tell the story of Grandad, the great artist, and how he finds himself in a right royal pickle when he is asked to draw The Queen performing her famous royal wave. You've got to hand it to Chloe's Grandad because you'll laugh out loud when you see how he cleverly draws his way out of trouble and into Her Majesty's favour.
