Two children compare their granny with others. Some grannies have thin legs, fat knees, crinkly eyes, or big soft laps. Their granny has a wobbly bottom and wears an old red sweater that was grandpa's. She has a style all her own -- and to the children who love her, this granny is perfect. Full of warmth and good humor.
"Australian duo Wild and Vivas work their own special blend of magic in this affectionate ode to grandmothers of all sizes and hues. Here, a boy and a girl tell about grannies in general and their own in particular.... These [grannies] are...active, vigorous women whose lives dispel traditional beliefs about aging." -- Publisher's Weekly
"The text is large and clear. Vivas's translucent watercolor figures, surrounded by ample white space, spread over the pages and emphasize shape and movement.... An affectionate book that affirms the endless diversity of people, life styles, and families." -- School Library Journal
