Don't start here

The pictures have charm (particularly the lizards!) but the American text may need doctoring. 'Ice cream *topped* with cookies'? Make mine 'icecream and biscuits', please. And since this is a 'silly' book, why not go with a home-grown silly author like the prolific Babette Cole - or the not-so-silly, gorgeous and new to me Emily Gravett?
Curiously, the original American edition has 'grandpa', surely the preferred term this side of the pond also - why change it, Hachette? And, nota bene, the grandchild in question is indubitably male; it's for the girl to babysit grandma, in a companion volume. Is this quite kosher in this day and age?
Grandads - do the research
