‘An unusual, joyful picture book.’
The School Librarian
‘You won’t find Grandma Z with curlers and knitting needles. Run-of-the-mill for this gregarious granny involves motorcycles, rock climbing, a dragon’s tooth horn, dancing Icelandic ponies and afternoon tea at a palace – all while wearing a furry blue trench coat.’
Melanie Kembrey, The Saturday Age
