How I Lost My Ear (Grandpa Gristle's Bedtime Tales)
"How I Lost My Ear is an extraordinary imaginative achievement."
"Adam Beck is a master storyteller, a master of invention."
"Reminds me of the best of Roald Dahl."
The epic, laugh-out-loud novel from author Adam Beck and illustrator Simon Farrow. A wildly entertaining page-turner for both children and adults, to read alone or read aloud. Finalist in both the Readers' Favorite 2019 International Book Award Contest and the 2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards.
Grandpa Gristle spins the story of a book-loving boy and his spiraling adventure with a state champion marching band, a moody grandmother with beautiful blond curls, a long-lost hero and his three-legged moose, a dancing bear, a poisonous spider, a baby-snatching owl, a shaggy yak of a man and his snapping turtle, a cold-hearted sheriff and his grinning deputy, a herd of 144 spitting llamas--and a very large, very hungry ogre.
