About the book:
A moving story about coping with loss from bestselling author Holly Webb and illustrated by Catherine Rayner. Kate’s grandfather has died and she’s missing him desperately. Her Mum wants Kate to talk about it, but it only makes Kate angry. Granddad has gone and he’s never coming back. At least she has her toy tiger, Amos, to keep her company. It was a present from Granddad, and somehow holding him close makes Granddad seem less far away. But she doesn’t expect Amos to turn into a real tiger – a big, comforting, friendly tiger who smells of Granddad, and sounds like him too.
