Granny Grommet and Me

By Dianne Wolfer
Illustrated by Karen Blair

My granny and her friends go to the beach, and I go too ...

My granny and her friends go to the beach, and I go too. When they hit the surf, they duck and dive and twist and turn. It looks like lots of fun. But I don’t want to go in the water. There are strange things under the waves … A lovely story about the relationship between a granny and grandchild, overcoming fears and discovering wonderfully strange things.
