If your granny were a little bit, well, different from other grannies, would you want to change her, or would you love her just the way she is?

In this rhyming text, a little girl whose granny is (shhhh!) a witch just wants her gran to be like all the other grans, with a normal pet and nicely done hair. But when she realizes that her reformed granny is bored and boring, there's nothing to do but cook up a big pot of gloppy soup with granny and all of her frogs, cats, and bats!
Tracey Corderoy is a teacher with a passion for literature. She was born and grew up in industrial South Wales and now lives in a hidden valley in England with her husband, two children, and an ever-increasing menagerie of devilishly-cute-but-sometimes-rather-naughty pets.

Joe Berger is a children’s author, illustrator, and cartoonist who also makes the occasional award-winning animated short film and title sequence. When he’s not working, he loves to play board games. He lives in England with his wife, three daughters, two cats, and a small dog, all of whom refuse to play board games with him.

Corderoy’s rhymes are zappy and amusing, and Berger’s drawings are charming, if not altogether original.
—The New York Times

Berger creates a spunky, retro atmosphere of burbling cauldrons and swirling pinks in his matte art as the girl learns to appreciate her grandmother’s witchy eccentricities in this simple story.
—Publishers Weekly

This is a lovely, imaginative romp, with just a pinch of playful mischief thrown in.
