Corderoy, Tracey Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble, illustrated by Joe Berger. Nosy Crow (Candlewick), 2012. $15. PICTURE BOOK.
A little girl is embarrassed by her very different Granny, with her gloppy soups, her pointy hats, and her flying car. But when her granny lets the little girl make her over, the girl realizes, that maybe Granny really is something special.
This is a cute Halloween themed book, for girly girls, with nostalgic illustrations that will appeal to parents, also. But the theme of appreciating someone for who they are is much stronger than any holiday connection.
