Ben and Gran and the Whole, Wide, Wonderful World by Gillian Shields
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Prepare for the journey of a lifetime! Ben's favourite person in the whole, wide world is Gran, and Gran's favourite person in Ben. There is only one problem -- they live a whole, wide world apart. Now Gran is coming to visit. But with rocky rivers, scorching deserts and seasick cats to contend with, will she ever reach Ben's in time for tea? The split page design allows children to follow Gran's amazing journey at the same time as watching Ben busy making his preparations for her visit.
