A very funny take on the contortions a grandparent goes through to please a grandchild.

When Oliver visits Grumpy, Grumpy twists himself into a funny position to amuse his grandson. 'AGAIN!' shouts Oliver, so Grumpy does something even more extraordinary. 'AGAIN!' comes the refrain. And Grumpy complies. Again and again and again, until he's twisted himself slightly too far ...

With eye-watering yet hilarious detail, cartoonist Ralph Steadman captures the pain and delights of grandparenthood with merciless accuracy.

Ralph Steadman was born in 1936. He began his career as a cartoonist, and through the years has diversified into many creative fields. Ralph collaborated with Hunter S. Thompson in the birth of 'gonzo' journalism, withFear and Loathing in Las Vegas; he has illustrated classics such asAlice in Wonderland,Treasure Island andAnimal Farm, and written and illustrated his own books, which includeSigmund Freud,I Leonardo andThe Big I Am. Steadman is also a printmaker, and has travelled the world's vineyards, culminating in his booksThe Grapes of Ralph,Untrodden Grapes andStill Life with Bottle.

"Praise forNextinction: Steadman's colourful, spiky illustrations of critically endangered birds . . . a dazzling aviary of 'nearly extinct' boids. Save them all and make the ink-spattered Steadboid very happy." -Saga

"Nextinction is something of a rarity: a truly original take on popular science. Love them or hate them, Ralph Steadman's vivid cartoons bring out the character of these endangered birds in a way that photography and other illustrations can't match." -BBC Focus
