Silas’ Seven Grandparents

In this picture book, Silas’ seven loving grandparents make him feel “especially loved, times seven”. Each doting and somewhat over-zealous grandparent is different and very much involved in Silas’ life, which for Silas is sometimes over whelming. They take him to museums and planetariums, camping and berry picking. They stay up late to count shooting stars, ride roller coasters with him and cheer him on at his hockey games. Silas must choose a grandparent that he would like to stay with while his parents are away. Silas realizes that all his grand parents bring something unique into his life. Instead of choosing one over the other, he invites all seven grandparents to look after him

Horrocks is the author of Topher and Almost Eden. This is her first picture book.

Silas’ Seven Grandparents

Usually Silas loves having seven grandparents dote on him, but sometimes it’s all a bit too much. When Silas’s parents go away on a business trip, all of his grandparents want him to stay with them, but that’s just not possible. How will Silas resolve this problem without hurting the feelings of any of his grandparents?
