"A word from Granny Jane: "The grandmother-grandchild relationship ought to be one of the richest and most rewarding of your life. Even the best grannies, though, sometimes encounter difficulties, and The Good Granny Guide is intended to help you deal with them - an informal companion, to be dipped into whenever you need inspiration or just feel a bit stuck."
