Journey with Jack
Reminiscent of the classics brought to us by Roald Dahl, David Walliams (comedian turned number 1 best selling children's author) brings us Grandpa's Great Escape. The tale follows Jack, a naturally shy and reclusive 12 year old boy and his declining yet, somewhat held-together grandfather. Set in 1983, long after World War II has ended, Grandpa now finds himself in an old folks home, nostalgic of his days in the Royal Australian Air Force, memories that he shares with his grandson Jack. Together, David Walliams takes us on the journey that is Grandpa's Great Escape from the old folks home, but as you can imagine not everything goes to plan... - Cara, QBD Online
