The Book about Grandpa and his Grandchildren

Eva Bexell, illustrated by Karin Stjernholm Raeder

Every time Anton and his big brother Carl are to spend a few weeks with their grandparents, their old grandfather becomes a bit worried. He knows his grandchildren, what scamps they can be and what they can get up to. He likes it best when everything is tidy and in order, in other words when it’s really rather boring! But why should Anton and Carl care about that?

For example, Anton really wants his own dog and the little dachshund outside the post office will do just nicely. And those crayfish in the bath waiting to become dinner, they will make perfect playmates. Forget what grandfather thinks!

This is a collector’s edition that contains three titles about grandpa and his grandchildren. With incredible spot-on humour and sensitivity, Eva Bexell recounts what happens when the whole family gets together.

“The children’s happiness is limitless, the anger irrational and the sorrow endless. And I want to tel1 about this joy and sorrow”, said the author when the books were first published forty years ago.
