AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A laugh-aloud picture book celebrating nannas everywhere from a talented author and illustrator team.

'Some nannas dress in pink when they jog around the track.

'But my nanna is a ninja … so she dresses up in black.

'All nannas are different.

'But what if your nanna was really different?

'What if your nanna was a ninja?

'This fun, poetic picture book portrays the many different guises, faces and personalities that nannas can have and demonstrates the significance of their role in the modern family.' (Publisher's blurb)
