Not so very long ago, there lived a man who was many things. He was a daddy for a long time and a grandpa for a little. He was music and stories, mathematics and mowers. His head was full of gardens, orchestras and family. He lived in lots of places; busy places, and quiet places, and lived so much life you could have mistaken him for three people all at once!
It's so hard to tell just one story about such an exciting person, who did so many things, that I think we shall have to tell many! His name was Ivor John Cox, but I suspect he would have liked you to call him Grandpa.
