'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

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.
We read it over and over again, the kids love it and does mum and dad.
The house is full of laughter when we read Wee Granny's Magic Bag.
Hope Wee granny's Magic Bag will soon have more exciting tales to tell.
