Here comes the fearless granny gang,
The youngest eighty-two.
They leap down from their granny van,
And there’s nothing they can’t do!

A gleeful celebration of why grannies are great!

Through wonderfully rhythmical writing and exquisite illustrations, Judith Kerr OBE shows us that there is a lot more to this gang of grey-haired grannies than meets the eye!

A summary on pages 34 and 35 of each granny and her skill supports children in recapping the story, providing plenty of speaking and listening opportunities.

Lime/Band 11 books have longer sentence structures and a greater use of literary language.

Ideas for reading at the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.
