The first time I saw this book it was being read on @cbeebieshq story time and at the end my little boy asked why my eyes were wet.
Syd and his Grandad are best friends. Their houses face each other and each day they go on adventures in Grandad’s attic. One day they travel to a magical island but this time Syd returns to his Grandad’s attic alone.
Syd is sad and lonely in the attic all by himself but a tapping on the window and a message from Grandad do life his spirits. Younger children will take the story at face value but older children will understand its allegorical message. Recommended for children of all ages but take care if children have recently had a loss in the family.
