Abstract:

"'Did I tell you about the time I invented the first train and drove it from Auckland to Wellington?' Whenever Jack visits Granny and Grandad, they entertain him with wild stories about their past, each trying to outdo the other. First there's the tale about the colossal, hungry dragon of Waitemata Harbour, then there's the bridge between the North and South Islands, not to mention the invention of the world's first rotary-clothesline helicopter, and many more. Written by Jack Lasenby, the master of tall tales, and with equally wild and wonderful illustrations by Bob Kerr, readers young and old will be captivated by Grandad's Wheelies - especially as each yarn, in a way, is true."
