Description

Life with Nana is perfect: she always has time to bake fresh chocolate chip cookies, tell wonderful bedtime stories, and knit cozy mittens and socks and turtleneck sweaters. Perfect, that is, until she meets Bob. All of a sudden, Nana’s too busy for baking and storytelling and knitting. She’s spending her time talking on the phone, giggling, taking long bubble baths, singing love songs, and putting on makeup! What can one aggrieved little boy do to get back Nana – just the way she was?

Complemented by the playful, quirky, chalk-pastel art of Georgia Graham, Nana’s Getting Married will ring a familiar bell with every child who has had to share the attention of a beloved adult. What’s more, it demonstrates hilariously that love has nothing to do with age.

Nana’s Getting Married

Nana was the best grandma in the world — she baked chewy chocolate chip cookies, knit mittens and socks and told the best stories at bedtime. Then Nana met Bob, and her grandson did not approve! This delightful story will resonate with anyone who has ever had to share the attentions of their favourite person with someone new. The playful chalk-pastel art of Georgia Graham will produce many giggles.
