Whizz! Pop! Granny, Stop!


My granny is quite . . . different, of that there is no doubt. In a world jam-packed with grannies, you’d always pick her out!

Welcome to a hilarious series by award-winning picture book creators Tracey Corderoy (author of the hugely successful Shifty McGifty books) and Joe Berger (former World Book Day artist).

There is more trouble afoot for the little girl whose granny is a witch, whom we first met in Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble. Granny just loves to help – a little bit of magic always speeds things along – and she’s happy to whizz out her “helping kit” at the drop of a pointy hat. But sometimes all her granddaughter wants is to do things under her own steam, and to spend some time with her beloved granny. But will her birthday party go with a POP without any magic?

Whizz! Pop! Granny, Stop! is a riot to share and makes the perfect Halloween treat, yet has bags of grandparent-grandchild fun to be enjoyed all year round! The charming combination of granny-witch theme, a warm message about acceptance, rhyming text and stylish illustrations make the Hubble Bubble series a bewitching brew for all little people who like a sprinkling of magic on their stories.

Take a look inside

“This is a delightfully warm and witty book, combining every child’s desire for conformity with the extra little thrill of having a granny who knows exactly when magic can be useful. Corderoy’s lively rhyme is mirrored by Berger’s wonderfully expressive illustrations.”

“This visually exciting picture book is a riot of colour and action. The adventures of a group of big, bold characters are sure to steal youngsters’ hearts and all is revealed with Corderoy’s trademark funny rhyme. Beautifully produced, Whizz Pop, Granny Stop! is perfect for little people who are keen to be independent.”

“Another delightful story, full of fun, with Joe Berger’s delightful illustrations.”

“The mixture of Granny, lots of magic and a birthday will be sure to hit all the buttons with readers young and old. The modern, fun illustrations by Joe Berger and rhyming text by author Tracey Corderoy superbly complement each other and bring to life the heartfelt, meddling granny and exasperated grand-daughter.”

“Corderoy and Berger have concocted a splendid follow-up (Hubble, Bubble, Granny Trouble, 2012) full of gentle humor spotlighting the special relationship between grandmothers and granddaughters.”
