A very funny take on the contortions a grandparent goes through to please a grandchild.
When Oliver visits Grumpy, Grumpy twists himself into a funny position to amuse his grandson. 'AGAIN!' shouts Oliver, so Grumpy does something even more extraordinary. 'AGAIN!' comes the refrain. And Grumpy complies. Again and again and again, until he's twisted himself slightly too far . . .
With eye-watering yet hilarious detail, cartoonist Ralph Steadman captures the pain and delights of grandparenthood with merciless accuracy.
