Encyclopedia of Grannies

Publisher: Gecko Press

Are grannies any good at walking? How flexible are they? Do you ever find grannies inside pumpkins? There are so many different types of grannies, too. Grannies in ski suits! Grannies who love nature, city and country grannies! Sometimes they’re called Nan or Gran, and sometimes Abuela, Bubbe and Oma. Sometimes they have cats, and sometimes they travel on buses. They might have sensible or not-so-sensible hair.

This colourful guide to all elements of grandmotherly life reminds us that grannies, like everyone else, are full of wonderful variety. They might be hiking around Senegal in their slippers, or chilling in their comfy, cauliflower-scented bed with your grandpa, but we love them all.

Readers are reminded that it’s also nice to do kind things for our grannies, like sending her a card in the post, peeling her an orange, scratching her back and maybe even taking her to Lapland.
