About Grandpa Frank's Great Big Bucket List

11-year-old Frank John Davenport unexpectedly inherits piles of money from a grandma he didn't know he had, and not only that, but the money comes with STRICT instructions...and a NEW grandpa - lifelong Charlton Athletic supporter Grandpa Frank who remembers when the Addicks won the FA Cup in 1947. 

Frank Jr. quickly compiles a list of all the ways he can spend the money and look after his new and pretty grumpy grandpa. Money may buy hot-air balloon rides, monster-truck lessons and epic parkour experiences, but along the way, can Frank discover that happiness is, in fact, priceless?

Age range: Suitable for all ages but the book is aimed at 8+ readers.
