Sophy Henn, author of Almost Anything, Playtime with Ted, Bedtime with Ted, Edie and Pom Pom Gets the Grumps is back with a brand-new book! Older Not Wiser is out on the 31st May and tells the story of Jeanie’s up-to-no-good Grandma. At what age are you old enough to know better? 10? 15? 20? Older? Jeanie’s Grandma is always getting into mischief and, although it can be embarrassing for Jeanie sometimes, it is really fun when she gets involved in her Grandma’s tricks. This gorgeously illustrated Bad Nana book is the first in a brand-new series, with 8-year-old Jeannie sharing her Grandma’s latest exploits. This mischievous little book is aimed at readers aged 6 and above. Perfect for making little mischief-makers gasp in shock and laugh your socks off!
This fabulously fun book has been reviewed by Andrea Reece who thinks this is a great book for ‘fans of Lauren Child and her Clarice Bean stories’. Here is a little more from Andrea Reece: ‘Children are fascinated by the way old people have a license to misbehave, and they will be delighted by Bad Nana’s exploits which break all the rules of good behaviour … This lovely, hugely appealing book is one to recommend to fans of Lauren Child and her Clarice Bean stories in particular.’ If you want to read the Andrea’s full review, head over to the Older Not Wiser book page on the LoveReading4Kids site. This bright and colourful book, illustrated by Sophy Henn is a brilliant start to a new series that will be perfect for children starting to read on their own, and will bring laughter and fun to story times or assisted reading. Older Not Wiser will be published by HarperCollins on the 31st May, meaning it’s not long until we can enjoy the exploits of Bad Nana!
