Perfect for Father's Day, especially for those families who are separated by distance, Dear Grandpa celebrates the bond between grandpa and grandson.

Henry lives 2,003 kilometres from his grandpa - that's longer than all the world's blue whales placed end to end and as uncatchable as a goodnight kiss on a shooting star. But Grandpa knows that even from a long distance, love can be closer than you think.

Author bio:

Kate Simpson grew up on a diet of Little Women, Anne of Green Gables and anything written by Enid Blyton, but it didn't occur to her to try her own hand at writing children's books until she was in her thirties. Now she's hooked, and with two small children of her own, she finds she's never short of inspiration. As well as being a picture book author and incurable bookworm, Kate is also a co-host of the children's book podcast One More Page, where she happily spends an hour a fortnight interviewing fellow book-folk and talking all things children's books.

Ronojoy Ghosh is an award-winning picture book creator. His first children's picture book Ollie and the Wind was short-listed for the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Awards. His books have been translated into German, Chinese, Spanish and Korean. Ronojoy illustrated the bestselling picture book I'm Australian, Too by Mem Fox and Bin Chicken and its companion Winner Winner Bin Chicken Dinner by Kate and Jol Temple.
