Willa and Woof: Grandparents for Hire

Willa and Woof: Grandparents for Hire

Adventure, imagination and loads of fun.

Willa has the perfect solution for kids who don’t have someone to bring to Grandparents’ Day at school–hire an oldie from the retirement village next to her house!

But things aren’t exactly going to plan. Frank, her best old-age friend, won’t let her borrow him and something strange is going on with her best four-legged friend and trusty sidekick, Woof.

She’ll need her most imaginative ideas yet (and the help of Tae, her best same-age friend) to sort everything out in time!

Can Willa make Grandparents’ Day a big success?

Book Reviews - Book Number 3

“I love that Willa’s is constantly inventive and problem-solving–to be sure, sometimes she encounters obstacles but always she remains optimistic and positive.”

“Always a solution seeker, Willa works out a way to save her school Grandparent’s Day and future day trips for the residents, by combining both problems. Her character is perfectly captured by the author in age appropriate humour, questions and musings, and always makes me smile.”

“Just like the two books before this one, Willa and Woof: Grandparents for Hire is a gentle story about a little girl who is thoughtful, kind, and a good friend. She always wants to help others. Willa sees the good in everyone and it may just encourage the reader to go out and do the same.”

“This really is a most gorgeous story for kids in the 6-10 year age group. It’s filled with realistic imagination, believable stories, how to interact with older people and one of the best things how to find solutions to tricky situations.”

“In Grandparents for Hire, Jacqueline Harvey will make you want to draw hearts around this bookand Willa!”
