Description

To Grace, family has always meant her Ma, her Nana and her cat Paw-Paw, but in all her school reading books families have a mother and a father, a boy and a girl, and a dog and a cat. So when Papa invites her to visit him in the Gambia, she dreams of finding a family straight out of one of her story books. But, when she arrives, she finds that her father has a new family. She has a little sister and a baby brother, and even a dog, but the mother is the wrong one she thinks. Although she has a lovely time, she feels as though there isn't enough of her to go around and that she can't manage two families. It is her Nana who helps Grace realise that families are what you make them, just like stories. A warm and delightful follow-up to the international bestseller and modern classic, Amazing Grace, this is an important story for all families and children today.
