From three-time #1 NYT Bestselling author of The Adventure Zone Graphic Novel series Clint McElroy comes a hilarious and heartwarming family picture book!

Little Goldie is an expert on grandchilding. She knows that grandparents are special creatures who thrive in a structured environment, need plenty of opportunities for imaginative play, love having dance parties, and will never turn down a cuddle. When it comes to the care and feeding of her beloved Grandpa, Goldie knows her stuff. And, as readers will discover, Grandpa knows a thing or two about grandchildren, too.

The beloved author (with his three sons) of the #1 NYT Bestselling Adventure Zone Graphic Novels, Clint McElroy is also grandfather to many grandchildren, all of whom are experts at grandchilding.


Clint McElroy is a 45-year veteran of broadcasting who now works on the popular podcast THE ADVENTURE ZONE, with his sons Justin, Travis and Griffin. He is one of the co-writers of THE ADVENTURE ZONE graphic novels, along with WAR OF THE REALMS: JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY, for Marvel Comics, and MARVEL TEAM-UP. He’s currently working on an animated The Adventure Zone TV show for NBC’s Peacock streaming service. He has three BEST DAD coffee mugs and six BEST GRANDPA...although the titles have been challenged.


Eliza Kinkz is a Tejana Author/Illustrator whose daily struggle is not spilling queso on her artwork. She has worked on various TV Shows for Nickelodeon and Adult Swim, in addition to her own animated films, and one time she was politely asked to stop playing George Lucas’s piano at Skywalker Ranch. She lives in Austin, TX with her family, two cats, and possibly another dead fish by the time you read this.

By purchasing a book from BookPeople, you are not only supporting a local, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to BookPeople.
