A funny, feel-good picture book about a grandad doing the wrong things for the right reasons.

My grandad is a rebel. We call him Granbad.

Granbad doesn’t believe in rules like screen-time limits or healthy snacks. But he does believe in saving the planet. When a protest to protect native forests doesn’t work, he will need to go to new heights to make it right. Good thing he’s a rule breaker…
