The Truth About Old People

Pan Mcmillan

Elina Ellis

Children's Book of the Week in The Telegraph

A very funny and lovable picture book tribute to grandparents and older people.


When you're small, everybody bigger than you seems really old. But does being older have to mean being boring, or slow, or quiet? NO! Elina Ellis' wonderful illustrations reveal that the age you are makes no difference to how amazing you can be.

From the winner of the Macmillan Prize for Illustration 2017, The Truth About Old People is an instant favourite with children and grown-ups that joyfully busts stereotypes about older people. Elina has a great talent for characterful illustration: you'll feel like you've known this family all your life.

Great for ages 3+
