“Grandad Mandela captures the beauty and wisdom of Madiba’s spirit. I honestly believe this book will help illuminate young peoples lives for many generations to come.

It’s an inspiring story of hope and positivity triumphing in the face of adversity.

The way the book captures the conversation between grandmother and grandchildren is so so touching. The marvelous illustrations by Sean Qualls capture the sensitivity of this and help bring the beautiful story to life.”
