Every Wednesday Grandma and Sam visit the railway yard to see the big steam train, and to imagine all the places it could take them.
On their last visit, Grandma takes Sam on a wonderful journey. High across the sky, over vast plains and great mountains they fly with the flamingos - right to the other side of the world. They bask in a soda lake, they join a pride of lions in the midday sun, they travel the mountain forests...
Grandma is going away, but through her wonderful story she shows Sam how he can visit her whenever he wants, simply by keeping her in his heart.
Prize-winning author and illustrator Paul Geraghty's sensitive text and breathtaking paintings tell a poignant story of a very special relationship.
