Editorial Reviews

"Slim or overflowing, Vivas's grannies are all delectably comical and rendered with a keen eye, a matchless sense of design, and a generous affection for all humanity." Kirkus Reviews

"An affectionate book that affirms the endless diversity of people, lifestyles, and families." School Library Journal, Starred

"From the intimacy of one family to the rich diversity of all kinds of people, this exuberant picture book celebrates grandmothers, and it does so without earnest messages or reverential role models . . . Grannies can be glamorous, cuddly, vain, or outrageous. . . . This is what family values is all about." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
