Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month August 2016 If you think all Grans look very much alike you should look again. Granny Smith looks just like every other Gran and she behaves just like every other Gran until she gets zapped by a ray from the Inventor’s super-machine. From that moment on she is Super Gran with the special powers of x-ray vision and a surprising turn of speed and strength. And she needs them. Super Gran is the only person with the skills to defeat the Inventor and his deadly super-machine. A delightful page-turning adventure propelled by a Gran with a difference.~ Julia Eccleshare

Supergran by Forrest Wilson

Granny Smith is an ordinary little old lady when something extraordinary happens. She is struck by rays from a super machine and becomes ...Super Gran! Extra fast, strong, with X-ray eyesight, Super Gran sets out with her grandson Willie and a girl called Edison to right all the wrongs in their town. Along the way, Super Gran performs amazing feats, foiling a back robbery and saving a child from drowning. But the super machine has been stolen by the Inventor, who has very bad plans for it. Can Super Gran and her loyal sidekicks save the day?
