The Lovereading4Kids comment

This could quite possibly be the loveliest, happiest book about families published all year! It’s full of invaluable advice for grandchildren on how to make sure every granny is a happy granny. Don’t for example put leftover spaghetti in her handbag, or wear her pants on your head, or race her on a skateboard (she might win). But definitely do listen to her, play with her and most of all love her. Holly Sterling’s cheeky little children are lively enough to keep any trace of sentimentality at bay and this is a celebration of modern families in all their noisy, busy, joyful glory. Buy it immediately for the granny in your life! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

15 Things Not to Do with a Granny by Margaret McAllister

The hilarious follow-up to 15 Things Not to Do with a Baby has all the warmth and humour of its predecessor, focusing on the relationship between children and their granny. DON'T hide an elephant in Granny's bed. DON'T send Granny up to the moon in a rocket, or wear her pants onyour head, or give her squashed jelly beans on toast for breakfast. But do...dance with Granny, listen to Granny's stories, hug her and love her lots. She loves you!

About the Author

Margaret McAllister

Margaret McAllister lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, a practicing Minister. With a background in teaching, Margaret, has always enjoyed making up stories and in the early nineties found the time to put these down on paper. Her first book A Friend for Rachel (re-titled as The Secret Mice) was published in 1997 by Oxford University Press. Margaret has since gone on to publish further novels with OUP (including many literacy titles in their Reading Tree series) as well as with Bloomsbury and Puffin.

With favourite authors including Jane Austen, C. S. Lewis, Elizabeth Goudge and Jerome K. Jerome, it is no surprise that Margaret enjoys writing historical and fantasy fiction. Margaret is known for her Mistmantle Chronicles, the first of which – Urchin of the Riding Stars – was shortlisted for the Ottakar’s Children’s Book Prize, as well as The Life Shop and High Crag Linn for Lion Children’s Books. Most recently Margaret has published the Hammy the Wonder Hamster series under the pseudonym Poppy Harris for Puffin, and The Lion Classic Aesop’s Fables for Lion (September 2011).

In addition to writing, Margaret enjoys dance, theatre, music and history, and is currently learning how to play the piano.
