Have you ever wondered where the other sock goes, or those keys or your earring or pen? Grandad wonders that all the time.

Things keep disappearing down the back of Grandad's sofa -- who, or what, has taken them?

When Lenny and Grandad discover the Kleptoes and their hideout, things turn nasty. And Kleptoes can be very nasty indeed ... especially Old Mother Kleptoe.

Oisín McGann studied art at Ballyfermot Senior College and Dún Laoghaire School of Art and Design, and went on to work in illustration, design and film animation.

He now lives in Meath and works as an author, freelance illustrator and artist. You can check out Oisín's own website at oisinmcgann.com.

An old favourite in our house … You’ll never put your hand down the back of the sofa cushions again.

YEAH!!! Mad Grandad's back and this is his best adventure yet. Pretty scary stuff, this is the Borrowers with malice, and makes for a great yarn for young readers gaining confidence in tackling full-length books.

Evening Echo

With his big square glasses, bulbous nose and free-flying eyebrows, McGann’s Grandad is a truly original creation. The illustrations, drawn from interesting perspectives, are imaginative and full of detail

With a real sense of zany fun.
