A touching tale that captures both the past and present in a story of family ties and childhood adventures
Granny’s Place is a touching, whimsical tale of family ties and the special place a grandparent has in the heart of a child.
Granny and Pa’s farm was the best place in the world, brimming with treasures of the past and endless adventures to be had … but time brings change. Regardless of uncertainty, there is an enduring love for Granny, and special childhood memories to be cherished forever.
Delightful illustrations bring the past to life and capture the fun of cousins gathering in a country kitchen and planning adventures amongst the beauty of rural Australia in the 1960’s.
Granny’s Place enriches both the understanding of the time and Australia’s past identity, through a wonderful story that celebrates the special bond between grandparent and child.
The targeted early childhood audience will share in the delight of adventure while gently being encouraged to accept that change comes with the rhythms of life.
‘… overflowing with gorgeous imagery that will ignite warm recollections for many older readers. It also radiates the spirit of adventure and the changing rhythms of life that most young people will recognise whilst celebrating these childhood memories. A marvellous homage to Australia’s past identity and a fitting example of creating a special sense of place.’
