Bad Nana: All the Fun of the Fair

Publisher: HarperCollins

Review

Jeanie is seven-and three-quarters years old and lives with her mum and dad and annoying little brother; she also has three nanas, the best one being Bad Nana.

It's not overly clear to Jeanie why Bad Nana is called Bad, though, because she's super fun and always has sherbet lemons and a whoopee cushion in her handbag.

One day, the fair comes to town and Jeanie is determined to win the fancy dress competition; her friend Sukey is convinced she can win the pet competition with her silky hamster; and even Jeanie's dad gets in on the action by entering the bake off with his coffee and walnut cake.

But when Bad Nana's nemesis Mrs Farquar-Haha rigs the pet competition, Bad Nana is determined she'll set things to rights...

The second in Sophy Henn's bright and brilliant series about a subversive turban-wearing grandma is just as funny as the first, with some life-affirming messages about the benefits of being an idiosyncratic, independent and courageous Nana - and what a role model a strong older relative can be for little ones.
