9780007106516: My Grandmother's Clock

In grandmother’s house there is a grandfather clock, but it does not go. The hands on its big face never move…

But grandmother doesn't need the clock to show the time, she says that there are so many other clocks telling her the time. She can count the seconds by the beating of her heart, an hour in the time it takes for the bath water to get cold, a week by the dust that settles on the grandfather clock and a lifetime in birthdays, friends and in what you can remember.

Lyrical, moving and beautifully illustrated, this is a book to be treasured.

Review:

‘McCaughrean sees with a poet’s eye, and her book is as classic an address on this subject for those of 6+ as Tom’s Midnight Garden is for older readers. The dreamy, luminous illustrations by Stephen Lambert make this one of the most stimulating and attractive picture books of the year.’ Independent

‘Geraldine McCaughrean has produced an inspired picturebook in My Grandmother’s Clock. Illuminated with Stephen Lambert’s gentle pastels, this book is both useful and moving.’
Sunday Times

Book Description HarperCollinsChildrensBooks, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used; Acceptable. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. The book is perfectly readable and fit for use, although it shows signs of previous ownership. The spine is likely creased and the cover scuffed or slightly torn. Textbooks will typically have an amount of underlining and/or highlighting, as well as notes. If this book is over 5 years old, then please expect the pages to be yellowing or to have age spots. Ex-library book. This is an ex-library book and therefore has stamps throughout. It is also likely to have considerable shelf-ware. It is however still in useable condition, and a great read. Thanks.
