David Walliams, hailed as “the heir to Roald Dahl” byThe Spectator,burst onto the American scene with theNew York TimesbestsellerDemon Dentist. Now the UK’s #1 bestselling children’s author is back with this high-flying adventure about a boy and his grandfather, perfect for fans of Jeff Kinney and Rachel Renee Russell.

Grandpa is Jack’s favorite person in the world. It doesn’t matter that he wears his slippers to the supermarket, serves Spam a la Custard for dinner, and often doesn’t remember Jack’s name. But then Grandpa starts to believe he’s back in World War II, when he was a Spitfire fighter pilot, and he’s sent to live in an old folk’s home run by the sinister Matron Swine. Now it’s up to Jack to help Grandpa plot a daring escape!

In his old age, Grandpa has become confused. He believes he is back in World War II, when he was an RAF Spitfire pilot. Only one person can understand him: his grandson, Jack.

When Grandpa is sent to Twilight Towers—an old folk’s home run by sinister Matron Swine—it’s up to Jack and Grandpa to plot a daring escape. Little do they know, the wicked matron is on to them. . . .

Rosss energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story.A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank CotrelÓ"
