Tabby's fed up. Fed up with losing her best friend and fed up that Grandad has come to stay. Grandad's always telling the same old silly, made-up stories and now Tabby has to walk his smelly dog Buster every day after school. When one of Tabby's walks takes her to a lonely hilltop house she spots something strange going on. So strange she can't help but mention it to Grandad who of course turns it all into another fantasy. But when tragedy strikes, Tabby's left wondering if Grandad's impossible story could be true? A poignant and uplifting story of family, connection and imagination, from the Blue Peter Book Award shortlisted author of Owen and the Soldier. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+
