When a young girl tries to change her eccentric grandmother she realizes that being normal isn’t for everyone. Lively illustrations in a purple palette (6-8).
— From Humor
If your granny were a little bit, well, different from other grannies, would you want to change her, or would you love her just the way she is? In this rhyming text, a little girl whose granny is (shhhh ) a witch just wants her gran to be like all the other grans, with a normal pet and nicely done hair. But when she realizes that her reformed granny is bored and boring, there's nothing to do but cook up a big pot of gloppy soup with granny and all of her frogs, cats, and bats.
About the Author
Tracey Corderoy is a teacher with a passion for literature. She was born and grew up in industrial South Wales and now lives in a hidden valley in England with her husband, two children, and an ever-increasing menagerie of devilishly-cute-but-sometimes-rather-naughty pets. Joe Berger is a children's author, illustrator, and cartoonist who also makes the occasional award-winning animated short film and title sequence. When he's not working, he loves to play board games. He lives in England with his wife, three daughters, two cats, and a small dog, all of whom refuse to play board games with him.
Corderoy’s rhymes are zappy and amusing, and Berger’s drawings are charming, if not altogether original.
