"Joyous... There is a gorgeous childlike voice to these poems...”  (Robin Houghton, Envoi)

This evocative poetry collection celebrates the bond between young and old, capturing time spent together and wonders shared. Inspired by childhood memories of her grandparents, Vicky Arthurs' vivid poems explore themes of love, war, nature and innocence. Some poems are seen through the eyes of a child, while others are remembrances and reimaginings of her grandparents' lives. Written with warmth and charm, this poetic family memoir pays tribute to a generation who lived through two World Wars. The book includes delightful title illustrations by British printmaker Kate Heiss.
