The Great Granny Gang by Judith Kerr

The Great Granny Gang
Here comes the fearless granny gang, The youngest eighty-two. They leap down from their granny van, And there's nothing they can't do! A gleeful celebration of why grannies are great! Through wonderfully rhythmical writing and exquisite illustrations, Judith Kerr shows us that there is a lot more to this gang of grey-haired grannies than meets the eye! Full of charm and laugh-out-loud fun, this is a must for every child's bookshelf.

I have found memories of Judith Kerr books, my childhood favourites included 'The Tiger who came to Tea' and when this book arrived on my doormat I was very interested to explore this story too!

The story is written in Kerr's fantastic rhyming prose and is filled with plenty of humour and I am sure that story time will be very interesting while children see which granny looks like their own throughout this hilarious story! While reading the story I was reminded of that group of 'golden oldies' on last year's Britains Got Talent with the gold medallions singing and rapping.

As with previous Kerr books, this story is accompanied by beautifully drawn illustrations, each would make a lovely picture to hang on a child's wall, and together they make this book a beautiful gift to give from  Grandmother to child or vice versa to share at those special story times.

I would recommend this as the perfect Christmas gift to give this Christmas.

Thank you to the publishers,  Harper Collins Children, for sending me this book to review.
