The 1st October marks Older People’s Day, a day dedicated to commemorating the achievements of elderly people within our communities.
Books That Celebrate Older People
Operation Underpants and the sequel Claudia are uplifting stories written to celebrate older people. The heroes are two 87-year-old’s, Max and Olivia.
These are action and adventure books – however, they transverse social and political issues; hopefully getting you thinking.
An Uplifting Story – Humour, Action, Adventure and a little Quirky.
Operation Underpants celebrates the more venerable amongst us.
Max and Olivia met as teenagers on covert operations during WW2. After the war, they married and under the guise of a doddering old vicar and his wife, continued a life of secrets as cold war spies.
Now 87 years of age and confined to a nursing home in Australia they are called back into action after finding a hidden message in a funeral notice for Claude Duval. Somehow, they must escape from the home and travel to the United Kingdom and retrieve the Janus Machine hidden in the dying days of the war. Although pursued by the police and those determined to stop them, the fate of London and much of the world hangs in the balance – they must succeed.
