"A winner from beginning to end-and affirmation that Pride belongs in every community." - Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Bustling, bright-hued images with a rainbow motif show the intersectionally diverse community-portraying people of varying abilities, body types, gender expressions, and skin tones-preparing for the event, giving each page a celebratory vibe. In this gladly intergenerational view of Pride, Woodgate's sequel to Grandad's Camper offers a familial portrait that twines past and present." - Publishers Weekly

After Milly discovers a pride flag in Grandad's attic, this adorable pair are motivated by the past to start a pride parade in their small town. Activism and celebration go hand in hand as the town gathers to help "build a world where everyone is proud to be themselves." This beautiful follow-up to Grandad's Camper is filled with heart and purpose.
Harry Woodgate is the Stonewall Honor, British Book Award, and Waterstones Children's Book Prize award-winning author and illustrator of Grandad's Camper. Inspired by their university dissertation which revealed a lack of representation for older LGBTQIA+ characters in children's books, Grandad's Camper and Grandad's Pride lovingly portray queer elders. Harry writes and illustrates diverse, inclusive stories that inspire young readers to be inquisitive, creative, kind, and proud of what makes them unique.

"Woodgate's upbeat art brims with color and, aptly, rainbow motifs, depicting a supportive community diverse in race, ability, and self-expression. This is a quiet yet moving read with a powerful message: You don't need corporate sponsorship or larger-than-life events to celebrate Pride; all you need is love. A winner from beginning to end-and affirmation that Pride belongs in every community."
— Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

Milly suggests going to Pride in Grandad's camper van, and when he says that his "partying days" are long gone and the city is too busy, works with him to assemble the first-ever village Pride locally. Bustling, bright-hued images with a rainbow motif show the intersectionally diverse community-portraying people of varying abilities, body types, gender expressions, and skin tones-preparing for the event, giving each page a celebratory vibe. In this gladly intergenerational view of Pride, Woodgate's sequel to Grandad's Camper offers a familial portrait that twines past and present.
