'What I need,' said Pearl, as she started to slide off the roof, 'is a grandmother.'
But where do you get a top gran at short notice? It's not easy. Luckily Pearl's got Winston to help her, and you can do anything when your best friend is the world's brainiest guinea pig.
Then Pearl meets Gran and the surprises begin.
A funny and moving story about letting go (and not drowning).
