When Grandad Was a Penguin

A hilarious and touching swapping places story from the creator of Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, Morag Hood.

What do you do when your Grandad starts acting VERY much like a penguin? Find out in this brilliantly funny and heartwarming story from new talent, Morag Hood. Boys and girls alike will love Morag's witty, sweet and brilliantly surreal depiction of everyday settings and situations in this fish-out-of-water story with a difference.

Morag's lino cut artwork is gorgeously bold and stylish and her illustrative talent and keen eye for design won her a place as runner up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration.

When Grandad was a Penguin is perfect for sharing with children (and grandads) young and old, and its beautifully textured hardback cover and extra-special high quality paper make this an excellent gift for penguin lovers.

Author Bio

Morag Hood has a unique voice. Her idiosyncratic, wry humour permeates everything she does, creating books of style and irresistible charm. Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea was a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration, marking a glorious picture book debut. Morag spent her childhood writing stories, painting, and dreaming of having a pet duck. Following a degree in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art, and an MA in Children's Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, Morag returned to live in her native Edinburgh with her husband. She still likes making stories, printing, cutting and sticking, and freshly sharpened pencils. The pet duck is yet to make an appearance.
