When Granny Tells a Story by Fran Evans


When Granny Tells a Story by Fran Evans

A visit to Granny always ends in adventure! A charming story brought to life through Fran Evans's stunning illustrations. Granny's opening her trinket box and she's going to tell us a story. Which one will she choose?


Granny has a beautiful memory box made for her by Grandad, a place where she can keep all kind of objects that have a special meaning for her, from the farm animals she played with as a child, through mementoes of amazing journeys and the childhood of her own children, right up to the present day. Her grandchildren love to listen to the stories these mementoes evoke. The stories are told through the lovely and magical illustrations which are full of wonderful detail that a child can spend hours poring over. And there is a surprise at the end which any child would like to copy ...

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
