The Gift Boat

(2004)
(Inside Grandad)
A novel by

 
Grandad is the most important person in Gavin's life. The two understand each other perfectly. Grandad teaches Gavin to fish in Stonehaven harbour, and is making him a beautiful model boat for his birthday. Gavin names her Selkie, after the mythical seal-people, who will help you if you're in trouble.

When Grandad is suddenly struck down by a massive stroke, Gavin is devastated. But he is determined to prove the doctors wrong, and find a way to reach his real Grandad, trapped somewhere inside the paralysed body in the hospital bed. He is sure that, somehow, the little boat, and the magical selkies in the sea, hold the key to bringing his grandfather back to life, against all the odds.

Peter Dickinson is one of the most acclaimed and respected writers of our time and has won nearly every major literary award for his children's novels. The Kin, his first book for Macmillan, was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal in 1999, as was The Ropemaker in 2001. He was one of the three shortlisted candidates for the first Children's Laureate.
