Celebrate love in all its forms, as Grandad tells his granddaughter about the adventures he used to have with Gramps.

A long time ago, Grandad and Gramps spent many happy days travelling the world together in a camper van. But now Gramps isn’t around any more, Grandad doesn’t feel much like having adventures. As she listens to his wonderful stories, Grandad’s granddaughter has an idea to cheer him up…

Review by Stacey

Grandad’s Camper is a charming children’s picture book about a young girl and her Grandad. Whilst visiting her Grandad he reminisces about the years and fun he had in his camper van with his partner, the little girl’s Gramps.

The story has a comforting feel to it as Grandad shares his stories from visiting cities to sleeping by the beach in the couple’s beloved camper van, but now that his partner has gone the camper is stored away.

It is delightful to share in the memories of the good times the couple had and emphasises that love is what matters in this world, no matter the colour of our skin or our gender. I love the beautiful, full-page illustrations that adorn each page and bring the past and present to life.

A tender journey told via the power of storytelling. This is an amazing book that was very heartfelt.
