Synopsis

My Granny Was a Frightful Bore (but She Isn't Any More) by Nanette Newman

Just because your granny is old doesn't mean she is boring! This granny is full of energy - in fact, it wasn't until her eighties that she started really having fun. She's learnt to tap-dance, has tried to fly, learnt magician's tricks, and plays regularly in a football team amongst many other things. This title is a wonderful celebration of old age and will delight and amuse readers, both old and young.
