An offbeat book full of word play and humour, answering all your questions about grandmas-especially the ones you never thought to ask Why do grannies always tell us to speak up? Why do they have creases on their faces? Are grannies flexible? How do you cheer up a sad granny? Exactly how old are grannies anyway? Eric Veille explains it all in this witty book for anyone who has, is, knows or will one day be a grandmother.
