Grandad and Milly reunite to learn about Pride and the power of community in this touching and vibrant sequel to Waterstones Prize-winning Grandad's Camper.

The highly-anticipated sequel to Waterstones Prize-winning Grandad's Camper celebrates the power of community and the importance of LGBTQIA+ history.

Milly can't wait to spend a summer at Grandad's cottage by the sea, and is even more excited when she discovers Grandad and Gramps’ Pride flag in the attic. Grandad insists he's too old to go to the London celebrations, especially now Gramps isn’t around any more, but Milly has an idea to get the local community together and bring Pride to Grandad.

Creators

Harry Woodgate (pronouns: they/them) is an award-winning illustrator, who was shortlisted for the V&A Illustration Awards 2019 and the Folio Society Book Illustration Competition 2018 and 2019. Their debut picture book Grandad’s Camper won the Waterstones Children’s Book Award for picture books in 2022 and was an ALA Stonewall Honor Book. It was inspired by their university dissertation, which revealed a lack of representation for older LGBT characters in children’s books. When they’re not creating amazing books, they love writing music, cycling, baking, and exploring independent coffee shops and bookstores. Harry is based in St Albans, UK.
