Grandpa Frank’s Great Big Bucket List by Jenny Pearson

Jenny Pearson is the queen of comedy writing that bursts with empathy and a whole lot of heart! Grandpa Frank’s Great Big Bucket List highlights the value of cross-generational relationships and how rewarding it is to look after someone else. Hilarious and touching, this is a book to smile through.

With a dying grandmother’s last request, a grandfather he never knew he had and a whole heap of money, Frank Davenport’s life is about to change forever!

Anyone would think a huge inheritance would make life easier but when Frank’s parents, who struggle with their own finances, insist there must be a mistake and his Dad should inherit the money instead, Frank has to come up with a plan to keep hold of every penny and use it for what it was intended – looking after his grandpa. He decides the best way to do this is to create a bucket list – a list of amazing, exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that Grandpa will never forget.

Cue laughable mishaps, exciting adventures and some really tender moments as Frank gets to know his grouchy yet charming grandpa. Their relationship proves to be something very special. Will they be able to keep ticking items off the bucket list until they reach the final goal – repairing their family – or will it all go catastrophically wrong?

Don’t miss this wonderful third book from Jenny Pearson – a great accompaniment to The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates & The Incredible Record Smashers!
