Grandpa Smart explains the world

Grandpa Smart loves explaining to his granddaughter how the world works. So when Luka asks her grandfather at bedtime how lightning and thunder are actually made, or where rainbows come from, well then, of course Grandpa Smart wants to dazzle her with his knowledge. Since the scientific details aren’t exciting enough for him, he promptly invents the craziest explanations. So foxes paint the evening sky red, and friendly time spirits spit cherry pips. Anyone wanting to know the real answer will find a short explanation at the end of each story, so in the end everyone will be at least as smart as Grandpa Smart.

  • Imaginative explanations for exciting natural phenomena
  • Stories to read aloud, for a good night’s sleep and restful dreams
  • 10 single stories put in a recurring frame
