The Truth about Grandparents

  • A humourous book to fight stereotypes about grandparents: There are as many different kinds of grandparents as there are possible ways to be involved in the lives of their grandchildren.

    "My grandfather hates being called Grandpa or Grandad", " My grandma hates Grandmothers’ Day"... 15 portraits of grandparents told by their children invite the readers not only to laugh, but also to understand and cherish their diversity, regarding their age - they are not all retired -, their hobbies - not all of them like to knit - or their origins - some might speak with an accent. A joyful anthology in which all grandparents will find something about themselves. No taboos in this book: Babysitting after school or on weekend is no longer mandatory for grandparents!
