Top ten books featuring grandparents

Sarah Moore Fitzgerald's debut novel Back to Blackbrick features a boy who lives with his grandparents. Published in the UK in February by Orion, Back to Blackbrick will be released in the US in September 2013 by Simon & Schuster. An academic and associate vice president at the University of Limerick by day, Fitzgerald writes novels late at night under cover of darkness.

One of the author's top ten books featuring grandparents, as told to the Guardian:
Holes by Louis Sachar

There's lots in this brilliantly told story, including the very unlucky Stanley Yelnats's "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing" great great grandfather, along with entertaining and clever lessons about character, karma and family curses.
