Grandpa Frank’s Great Big Bucket List is the third hilarious and heart-warming adventure from Jenny Pearson whose debut, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates, was shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Come along to meet Jenny (known as ‘The World’s Best Teacher’ by her class) and find out why Grandpa Frank is SO grumpy, what a bucket list actually is and whether money can actually buy you happiness! Hear a reading from Grandpa Frank’s Great Big Bucket List, get tips on setting a Guinness World Record (Jenny and the kids at her school actually set one in 2021) and create your own fun bucket list.
Jenny Pearson has been awarded six mugs, one fridge magnet, one wall plaque and numerous cards for her role as Best Teacher in the World. When she is not busy being inspirational in the classroom, she would like nothing more than to relax with her two young boys, but she can’t as they view her as a human climbing frame. Her debut novel, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates, was shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award and selected as a Waterstones Book of the Month.
