Granny Grommet and Me

Granny Grommet and Me is a picture book which tackles the worries of little swimmers, whilst embracing the comforting nature of the grandparent relationship - all in just one book.

Meet granny and her grommet friends - quite a natty little group who have a great regular little meet up at the beach. They slip on their wetsuits, slop on some sunblock ... before hitting the waves!

'Doris ducks and dives.

Zelda zooms through a dumper.'

Our little friend is not feeling so confident. The sea looks inviting, and the grommets sure are having fun ... but what 'strange things' lurk under the sea?

Little by little, and with some gentle encouragement, she begins to discover the fun to be had in the sea. A little bit of paddling, a little bit of splashing and a tentative look in the sheltered rock pool ... before being incredibly brave and venturing a little bit further, under the careful guidance of Granny.

Wolfer shows the granny / granddaughter relationship in a touching manner. I love how she carefully sidesteps stereotypical notions of what a granny is supposed to be like. This one is caring, thoughtful and with her own set of interests and friends.

Karen Blair's illustrations add so much to the story. I adored each granny's matching swimming costume, bag, flippers and snorkel mask - a stylish bunch of ladies for sure! The final page is my personal favourite due to its ability to encapsulate the love and trust between granny and her grand-daughter so perfectly.
