Granny: Adventurer

By The Estate of Jan Dallimore
Illustrated by Heath McKenzie

Our Granny needs supervision day and night. She is a walking catastrophe. Talk about little kids getting into regular trouble — Granny is a thousand times worse... Two stories. One book. Lots of laughs.

Story One — Amazon Granny. Granny is going to the Amazon to find the Tootle Bootle bird which hasn’t been seen for fifty years. But is Granny ready for the jungle? And is the Amazon ready for Granny? Story Two — Granny Camper. Granny is looking forward to a camping adventure. But she gets more than she bargains for when the Motorhome from Meg and Morrie’s Motorhome Emporium arrives...

About the author

Jan Dallimore had two grannies. One would make her cheese and jam sandwiches on really thick bread. Then she and Jan would go on a picnic together and eat the lot. The other granny would buy her great books and write lovely things in them. She would sometimes stay at Jan's place where they spent time creating games and playing them.

About the illustrator

Heath McKenzie once had a granny — in fact he had two. While neither Granny ever invented robots, powered through triathlons or suffered disastrous road accidents they were, nevertheless, prone to buying him gifts, cooking fabulous food and appearing on TV game shows.
