Jack’s Grandpa…

wears his slippers to the supermarket 

serves up tinned tongue for dinner

and often doesn’t remember Jack’s name

But he can still take to the skies in a speeding Spitfire and save the day…

An exquisite portrait of the bond between a small boy and his beloved Grandpa – this book takes readers on an incredible journey with Spitfires over London and Great Escapes through the city in a high octane adventure full of comedy and heart. 

Illustrated by the award-winning Tony Ross.
