The gritterman is a beautiful little story about a man heading out to his last day of work as a gritter man around christmas the writing by former maccabees frontman orlando weeks shows weeks knack for lyrical storytelling but its still simple enough to read it together with a child and yes i think this is a beautiful story for a family reading.
