‘Off Grub’ is a collection of letters sent home from a young boy called Hamish at an English boarding prep school. It is a charming and funny insight into a simple and uncomplicated school life enjoyed by Hamish and his friends. The letters dwell on his worries over beloved Chelsea FC reaching the Champions League and whether he might make it through to the final of the handwriting competition.
‘Off Grub’ is an affectionate and touching reminder of a golden time, not so far past, but now seemingly vanished for good. Illustrated throughout with original drawings from artist Lara Robinson, daughter of the author.
