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.

Reviews

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. Ages 3-up. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Corderoy's rhymes are zappy and amusing, and Berger's drawings are charming, if not altogether original.

-Publishers Weekly

This is a lovely, imaginative romp, with just a pinch of playful mischief thrown in.
