Grandmother Lola hates sardines, but Grandfather Lolo loves them. He eats them every day!

When she runs out of sardines one day, Lola can’t bear to think of Lolo going hungry. She decides to go fishing – with unexpected results! What on earth will Lola eat when she discovers that sardines are the only food on offer? And what will Lolo do when he finds out that his beloved Lola is missing?

"A very touching and entertaining story about friendship, love and compromise which shows Grandparents in a new, refreshing light."

Kirsty Sinclair, Early Years Operations Manager
