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."
In a story about being true to oneself, a girl is less than thrilled that her grandmother is less than ordinary. For example, everywhere Granny goes, she brings an entourage of cats, frogs, and bats; she can make things disappear; and she rides a broom. In an attempt to make her grandmother more "normalish," the girl gives her a makeover (involving a hair bun, a smart plaid suit, and a pink bunny), but Granny's spirits sink. Berger creates a spunky, retro atmosphere of burbling cauldrons and swirling pinks in his matte art as the girl learns to appreciate her grandmother's witchy eccentricities in this simple story.
