On an ordinary day, in an even more ordinary town, it was Albert's birthday.
Albert is faced with a birthday spent just like every other day. But when Grandma Z roars into town on her motorcycle, Albert is swept up in a very extraordinary adventure.
Grandma Z has been shortlisted in the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year awards as well as selected for the NY Society of Illustrators and Communication Arts annuals.
Foreign rights have been sold in France (La Seuil), Spain (Siruela), the USA (Kids Can Press) and China (Beijing Cheerful Century).
Here’s some very kind words about the book:
‘Grandma Z celebrates the power of vivid imagination, and the illustrations are absolutely spectacular, with bold colours and strong brushstrokes that convey a magical world … Daniel Gray-Barnett … has created something entirely unique that is both readable and a visual feast.’ - Angela Crocombe, Books+Publishing
‘This book will inspire and reinforce the importance of fun in growing up and lead you to believe that every day can be “unordinary”.’ - Herald Sun
