The Gritterman

The Gritterman

Orlando Weeks  (Author)
'Extraordinary and original' Raymond Briggs

'A tender fireside story about an ageing labourer ... witty, affectionate ... enchanting, in the vein of The Snowman' Evening Standard

'Sometimes it feels like I might be the only person awake in the whole country. People might find that a lonely thought. Not me...'

As the rest of the world sleeps, the Gritterman goes out to work. Through the wind and the snow. Through the blue-black hours when time slips away, he grits the paths and the pavements and the roads. For him, a life without gritting is no life at all...

A song for the unsung hero, this is a story about stoicism, dignity and a man leaving behind the work that he loves. It is accompanied by the author's own illustrations.
