Published by No Comprendo Press, 2013

Lars Fiske’s grandfather was one of the founders of one of the first automobile factories in Norway, but in grandfather’s car, it was grandmother who was most often the driver.

Full speed with grandfather is set in the last century, when the car was still new and unusual in Norway. It’s about a day when the family is on a road trip from morning to evening. The book is illustrated throughout, in widescreen, with action packed spreads, old cars and lots of details to enjoy and talk about.
