Kai and his grandpa are best mates, comrades and great friends. But for Kai, Grandpa is also his biggest hero. Then Grandpa starts forgetting things – even who he and his grandson are. Kai has to act fast not to lose him! And so he travels back in time to when Grandpa was a young lad during the war, hoping to stir his memories. Slowly, though, Kai realises Grandpa’s life wasn’t as heroic as he’d always made it sound in his stories. In this compelling, stirring tale that is filled with hope, Zoran Drvenkar writes frankly about a very special relationship between an 11-year-old and his grandfather.
