Everyone deserves a bit of grand . . .
From ordinary to extraordinary, Vincent and the Grandest Hotel on Earth is a marvellous ride that will delight readers of all ages.
Perched high on the snowy slopes of the Mabombo Ranges lies The Grandest Hotel on Earth. It’s wilder than the African savanna, more fantastical than Disneyland and more magical than Shangri-la.
So when ordinary eleven-year-old Vincent meets the hotel’s young Florence he sets off on a path leading into his most wondrous dreams.
But of course, dreams have a funny way of taking strange and surprising turns and, before long, Vincent is torn between right and wrong, friendship and family and the most enticing of desires – to see into the future . . .
Warning: this book includes insanely cute pocket dogs, travelling by llama or jet pack, chocolate fountains and shoes that play Bach.
“This is absolutely GRAND! I adored it. What a wonderful read!”
Karen Foxlee, author of 'Lenny’s Book of Everything'
“... so alive with magic and wonder ... simply impossible to resist. This is a charming and surprisingly moving delight for readers aged eight and older seeking more of Nevermoor's capriciousness, with all the sensitivity of Kate DiCamillo's best. Four stars.”
Phil Lesnie, Books+Publishing

“Wondrous and uplifting.”
Sandy Fussell, Sunday Telegraph
“This book is sure to win awards, including children’s choice book awards. It is highly recommended.”
“This novel so engaging it is difficult to stop reading it until the very end!”
Patricia Halsall, Magpies
“Vincent and the Grandest Hotel on Earth is an epic and addictive adventure for junior readers. This is a book-world to fall into headfirst, dream about when you aren’t reading and fantasise about long after you’ve come to the end of the story. Lisa Nicol has created something magical — truly, truly magical — and this is obvious from the very first page where Nicol and her mysterious co-author introduce the central characters in the preface.”
