AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A delightful picture book about Grandma's hilarious adventures during her week away from grandma duties. A quirky, appealing story about unexpected adult behaviour. Grandma is tired of being a good granny. She wants to climb an oak tree and the town hall clock, or maybe even catch the 12.30 pm rocket to the moon. No more knitting or making marmalade for this grandma! This is a delightful picture book about an unusual grandmother who decides to be very different . . . for a week!
