Product Description

Review

'Bogade's homey, cartoonlike illustrations offer plenty of expressive detail and gently comic moments, including the not-so-wee Granny hurriedly squeezing an oven back into her bag and her feisty white terrier, in matching tartan jacket, romping through each scene. A simple, affectionate story that will undoubtedly meet with demands for repeat readings -- Scottish brogue required.' -- Booklist Online 'If you have, or can put on, a Scottish accent, this book will be terrific for you to read aloud with great gusto... 'This is a very funny story about two children and their amazing granny who you will be as fond of as they are by the end.' -- EYE: Early Years Educator 'Wee Granny appears to be a typical grey haired, stout, bespectacled old lady but appearances can be deceptive. When Emily and Harry spent time with Granny they know that she cannot be separated from her large tartan bag. Whatever the need or emergency, Granny can meet it. It's all in the bag ... What she can pull out of the bag defies reason, and that's the source of the fun.' -- The School Librarian 'this book celebrates grannies, tartan and magic. McKay writes with a cheerful tone and the entire book awaits the magic that everyone knows is coming! The pacing is nicely done, dancing along happily. The story has a gentleness to it as well that is warm and friendly. Bogade's illustrations are done in ink and watercolor. They have a merriness to them as well, filled with bright colors and playing up the effect of pulling huge items from a small bag. The humor of the entire work is well reflected in the images. For children too young for Nanny McPhee, this picture book introduces an equally magical Wee Granny who is sure to fill their bedtime dreams with magic. Appropriate for ages 4-6.' -- Waking Brain Cells blog 'This is a pleasant title for youngsters just starting to understand the concept of preposterous things.' --School Library Journal Reviews, March 2012 'My daughter thinks this story is hilarious and even though she knows what is in Wee Granny's bag she laughs out loud every time we read it ... Maria Bogade's beautiful illustrations bring the characters to life and the last item to come out of the bag was impossible to guess on the first reading!' -- Story Snug blog 'This is a very funny story!' -- Jessica, age 4, Story Snug blog

This is a book that children will love to have read to them again and again. After hearing the story once or twice children will be excited that they know what Wee Granny will bring out of her magic bag next - and want it read one more time. Good fun.

Great story for young children- funny and magical! This is one to read again and again. My children loved it!
Would be fun to read aloud at Story Time in nurseries/infant classes, and would enhance the kids' imaginations and extend their vocabulary at the same time.

This is a lovely story and the children I work with loved guessing what was coming out of the bag. The illustrations are bright and colourful and the text easy to follow. This is a lovely book which i am sure you will enjoy. This is another good book for our Scottish collection.

I bought this for a friend's 5-year-old who is Spanish. Her mother translated it as she read it to her, and she laughed and laughed, and wanted it read to her again and again. She was totally captivated by the story. This is obviously a book which can be read by (or to) children from all over the world and I'm sure they'll enjoy it as much as my friend's little girl. I hope one day it will be translated into many languages.

A very entertaining book for children (and adults ) from start to finish.A delightful suspense as Wee Granny empties her bag producing unexpected and amusing items for her grandchildren.Along with the beautiful illustrations,the story will keep little ones captivated and I'm sure they will want to return to it again and again.A very clever idea and I hope there are more Wee Granny stories in the pipeline.

I bought this for my friend's children (aged 5 and 3) and they loved it. We had to read it 3 times the first afternoon, and they laughed every time. There are lots of things for them to notice in the pictures, and the story kept them well entertained. I hope Wee Granny has another adventure soon!

Wee Granny's Magic Bag is a smashing book for young and old. I've bought several as gifts to give young children and they have all loved it. Their parents loved it too! I hope we'll hear more stories about Wee Granny soon.
