Translated by Daniel Hahn. Gecko Press, 2019. ISBN: 9781776572434.
(Age: 7+) This colourful and busy book gives lots of humorous information you may have been wondering about grandmothers. It is an entertaining and light-hearted look at all the different thoughts a child may have had about grandmothers, like 'Why do grannies always tell us to speak up? Why do they have creases on their faces?' Headings include Age, Wisdom, Postcards, Flexibility, Knitting plus many more.
It is a book to be shared with a child as there are lots of interesting anecdotes written in quite small text.
This book would make a special gift to give and share with a grandmother.
Themes: Grandmothers, Questions, Finding Information, Humour.
