I'd rather go to Grandad's

Charlotte knows that the source of the world's Chocolate Button surplus is located at Grandad's house. So we spotted this book that is a cute little tale about a grandchild going off to stay with their adventuresome Grandad at his Lighthouse home.
The illustrations are absolutely beautiful in this. The text is a gentle rhyming tale that matches the bobbing of the waves in the story. Did you ever dream of spending a night in a hammock, or going fishing out to sea? Then you'll love this nautical-flavoured tale.
No chocolate buttons were harmed in the making of this book.
Charlotte's best bit: Kitty going to sleep wearing Grandad's Sailor Hat
Daddy's favourite bit: The quality of the illustrations.
