    “In an animated film that will form part of a series, (Michael) Morpurgo has grandfather George picking up the two drops of steel on his last day at the Bolton foundry before retirement. Back at home he fashions the steel into figures which he then gives to his grandchildren. Animated by a rainbow they turn somersaults for the children before disappearing off on the road to London.”
