Grandma's House by Alice Melvin
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Children will love exploring the rooms in Grandma's House, peering through its cut-out pages from one room to the next and journeying high up into the fold-out attic in search of Sally's grandma. Highly detailed and intricately illustrated in Alice Melvin's trademark style, Grandma's House is evidence of one of Britain's shining stars of illustration going from strength to strength.

Synopsis

Grandma's House by Alice Melvin

Often, after school, Sally goes to her grandmother's house where everything is different, but always the same. She puts her coat on the hook in the hall, pours a glass of milk for herself in the kitchen and tries to reach the biscuit tin on the highest shelf in the pantry. But where is Grandma?
