"Grandma Z" by Daniel Gray-Barnett (Scribble Books)

We love books that recognise just how amazing and influential grandparents are in our youngsters' lives.

C is lucky enough to have two sets of loving grandparents who dote on her, and have definitely enriched her life.

But what if you had a granny who was, let's say, a little 'out there' compared to most.

Meet "Grandma Z" by Daniel Gray-Barnett.

A lot like C's own (late) Great Grandma, Grandma Z is a bit of an eccentric character who roars around the town on a motorbike, who dresses rather oddly, and who is a heck of a lot of fun to spend time with.

Young Albert's life changes completely when Grandma Z shows up, whisking him on an extraordinary adventure at full pelt. Not one for knitting and sitting around, this particular Grandma.

Find out what Albert and Grandma get up to in this debut from Daniel, a very talented chap who is definitely going to be one to watch in 2020, mark our words!

Sum this book up in a sentence: Daniel Gray-Barnett's debut book showed just how much fun our elders can be and this is a brill book for kids who will recognise their own crazy grandparents in this effervescent and stunning character.

"Grandma Z" by Daniel Gray-Barnett is out now, published by Scribble Books (kindly supplied for review).
