If your granny were a little bit, well, different from other grannies, would you want to change her . . . or would you end up deciding you love her just the way she is? In this rhyming text, a little girl – whose granny is (whisper it) a witch – gets fed up with dealing with the problems she creates, so she tries to reform her; but a reformed granny is bored and boring. Maybe it’s more fun to take the bats to the cinema or to cook up a big pot of gloopy soup with granny’s witchy friends after all!

“This lively, gorgeously-illustrated book is a charming romp through witcherly fun. All about being yourself and loving others for the very same reason, our magical grandma may be a little different to most on the regular nanna scene, but she’s a whole lot of fun […] Kids will warm to the loving relationship between granddaughter and granny. Vibrant, retro-style pictures magically complement beautifully-rhythmic text, making this book duo one to watch.”
