The extraordinary touches a seemingly ordinary moment of family life, in this tender, heart-warming story from the award-winning Bob Graham.
From multi-award winning author-illustrator Bob Graham comes a tender, touching story of family life, perfect for sharing when a new baby is on the way. Francie and her mum, who is expecting a baby girl, are driving home from Grandma’s in the heavy rain. When they’re still far from home, they stop for a picnic. And as the car steams up, Francie presses her little finger on the window, spelling out “Daddy” and “Mummy” and leaving one space free, ready and waiting for the name of her soon-to-be sister… A beautifully observed celebration of the way inspiration can, and often does happen in the most ordinary and unlikely of places.
Bob brought us a celebration of the sun in How the Sun Got to Coco’s House – now he writes a story set against the backdrop of the fierce, epic and inspiring rain.
This is Bob Graham doing what he does best: this is a thoughtful and perceptive piece of storytelling, with a philosophical message about the extraordinary touching all our ordinary lives, wherever we are, whoever we are.
