Product description

Grandad’s house is at the bottom of Syd’s garden, through the gate and past the tree. Syd thinks he knows the place from top to bottom, until Grandad invites him up to the attic. Syd climbs the ladder and goes through a big metal door – and finds himself on the deck of a very tall ship, with an ocean of rooftops all around. With a loud ‘BEEP’ of the horn, Syd and Grandad sail to a faraway island. It’s a beautiful place of bright flowers and fabulous wonders. But when the time comes to go home, Grandad decides he’d rather stay…
