The Great Granny Gang by Judith Kerr

My Review

The Great Granny Gang is a wonderfully warm hearted book from Judith Kerr that we thoroughly enjoyed! It is a real fun and witty book that will have you giggling out loud on occasion! The illustrations are fantastic, they are colourful, attractive, fun and capture the story perfectly. My daughter couldn't believe all the hilarious things the great grannies got up to throughout the book as her great granny would never dream of doing anything of the sort. I don't think just anyone would get away with writing such a cheeky little book and I wonder if Judith Kerr might get up to some of the same outrageous activities herself!?

There is a gang of fearless grannies that get together to do jobs that regular great grannies wouldn't be caught doing! Things like fixing cars, re-building chimneys and farming - just to name a few! But when their local bakery comes under threat from some hoodies they all come together in a terrifying gang, but do they manage to save the day?

The ending is super and will put smiles on the faces of people everywhere! This book is a great little keeper that has a bit of a fun rhyming quality to it, which is always a huge plus in my book!
