This book is about 4 children Ivan, Sophie, Tanya and Nicholas. They have a mum who is called Natasha she is from Poland and she uses a lot of proverbs. They have a dad called henry Harris and he has a mum Granny.....
The parents decide to put her in a home because she is hard to look after. The children don't want this to happen so they decide to do a project about granny and Ivan and Sophie do this. But soon after she drops out so it is just Ivan. The parents find out about this and make them look after granny all the time. In the evening they go out dancing and other things. They find it hard to do and they miss out on what they want to do...
I think this book is boring at the beginning but gets better in the middle I would give this book a 6/10 and I would recommend this book to the age of 8-11. It does have some mild language in it. It brings up some family issues about Granny's going in to a home. At the begging it doesn't have much action and I wouldn't of read it if it wasn't for an English lesson. It doesn't really grab the reader's attention.

This book is about a family that need to take care of their granny so they loose all of their holidays. Henry, the children's dad and Natasha, the mother, wants to send her to a Home but the children (Sophie, Ivan, Nicholas & Tanya) don't want. Granny ends up staying and not going to the Home but the children's parent said that they would need to take care of granny while they go out dancing and doing fun stuff. When almost everything is in the place again Granny dies.
I read this book at my English lessons and i am going to have a test on it. At the beggining of the book i thought it was a really boring book but when it was in the middle i thought it was more interesting.
i thought the coolest part was when the children needed to do everything for Granny.
In conclusion this is a good book !!

I read this book in an English lesson,I think that it's a good book but its a little boring at the start but gets better as the story progresses. It's all about four children Ivan, Sophie, Tanya and Nicholas. They set up a Granny Project to keep Granny at home with them instead of her having to go to an old peoples home. The four of them battle with their parents to make sure she stays. The main characters are Natasha (the childrens mum) Henry (the childrens dad) Granny, Ivan, Sophie, Nicholas and Tanya. By Kim and Tizzy.

This is definitely a book you shouldn't judge by its cover, or title. It may drag on in places but it is worth sticking it out just to come across the hilarious parts. Underneath the funny sides there is a serious subject which is enhanced by the different characters. Take time to read it carefully as there are important lessons to be learnt.

This book is about 4 children Ivan, Sophie, Tanya and Nicholas. They have a mum who is called Natasha she is from Poland and she uses a lot of proverbs. They have a dad called henry Harris and he has a mum Granny. At the end she dies.
The parents decide to put her in a home because she is hard to look after. The children don't want this to happen so they decide to do a project about granny and Ivan and Sophie do this. But soon after she drops out so it is just Ivan. The parents find out about this and make them look after granny all the time. In the evening they go out dancing and other things. They find it hard to do and they miss out on what they want to do.
My favourite part of the book is at the end because Nicholas forgets that granny dies and the children think she gets stuck up a tree. In the book my favourite proverb is you can't make omelettes without cracking eggs.
I think this book is boring at the beginning but gets better in the middle I would give this book a 6/10 and I would recommend this book to the age of 8-11. It does have some mild language in it. It brings up some family issues about Granny's going in to a home. At the begging it doesn't have much action and I wouldn't of read it if it wasn't for an English lesson.
