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
