The Lovereading4Kids comment

Having a witch for a granny can cause problems as Pandora knows all too well! Visiting her granny one day, Pandora finds her busy making fairy cakes – and needing a lot of magic to help her. But Pandora has promised not to do magic anymore after some previously troublesome incidents. Instead, she’s got to try to keep her granny out of trouble! Three great stories in one beautifully illustrated volume for children reading independently.

Kirsty Stansfield, Nosy Crow Children's Fiction says “All grannies are great, but one who can do spells, take you on their broomstick and make things invisible? She is a truly glorious granny!”

Hubble Bubble: The Glorious Granny Bake Off by Tracey Corderoy

Pandora's granny is (whisper it) a witch! She causes magical mayhem wherever she goes. In these stories, she brings comic chaos to a televised bake-off, delightful disaster to a school fair and tons of trouble to a stately home! But she puts everything right in the end, with a bit of help from Pandora. Everyone loves Granny, especially her long-suffering granddaughter! Oh, goody! Tilda chuckled. Food-fight time! Did someone say food-fight? Granny beamed. Splendid! cried Gwendolyn. There was nothing like a jolly fine food-fight! All three grannies whipped out their wands. Then together they uttered the food-fight spell - Splatttiocious! The magical food-fight began at once. Pandora dived for cover as (take a deep breath) eggs-and-flour-and-sugar-and-lemons-and-carrots-and-lopsided-cakes-and-butter-and-milk-and-dribbles-of-sloppy-wet-meringue went flying through the air!
