Nana Says I Will Be Famous One Day

By Ann Stott
Illustrated by Andrew Joyner

School event? Ball game? Nana is there. But who will cheer on Nana after she takes a tumble? A sweet and spirited intergenerational story.

Nana cheers the loudest at her grandson’s basketball game. She dances in the aisles at the spring concert. She yells at the umpire that he needs to get his eyes checked when he doesn’t call the strikes her grandson pitches. But when this go-go-go grandmother takes a tumble trying to get a front-row seat at the basketball game, it’s her grandson who roots her on in her recovery. Author Ann Stott celebrates our families’ biggest fans in a lively first-person narrative from the grandchild’s point of view. Andrew Joyner’s illustrations are as energetic and upbeat as Nana, who sparks much comic action, purse by her side. Filled with humour and heart, this tale will have readers – especially grandparents and their grandchildren – whistling and woo-hoo-ing!

  • A heartwarming grandmother story that celebrates the unconditional (and sometimes humorously overwhelming) love between grandparent and grandchild
  • Andrew Joyner is the illustrator of many children's books, including the recently discovered Dr. Seuss manuscript Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum
