My mum gave me this book recently, 'Granpa' Illustrated and written by John Burningham, I was so amazed to see it, this is a book of my favorite film as a child. I had this on video and it was the only thing that could help me feel better when I felt ill or upset. If I had nightmares or couldn't sleep then downstairs I went with a blanket and my mum would put this on for me to watch. I had completely forgotten all about it and it's so wonderful to remember it again! The illustrations in the book are exactly the same as in the video, it's such a sweet but yet also sad story. It's definitely worth a view even if just for the art work which is so beautiful. Here are some more pages from the book:
I've found the video on YouTube and it's in 3 parts, if you fancy a look here's part one.
