I have had the pleasure of reading this book with a young man from my school. Danny is a 13-year-old young man who struggles with relationships and communication but is an avid reader. Danny absolutely loved the book and it has allowed us to build up a relationship, something that we had struggled with before.

By Chapter 2 we entered into the world of Gilbert and his grandma, and we read the book in role. This was a brilliant conversation starter as we got to invent voices and imagine the world as they saw it and lived it. We talk fondly of Gilbert and our new catchphrase is, -˜Now what would grandma say? Is this one of those opportunities in a hat?'

We loved the book and we hope to have more adventures with Gilbert and his grandma.
