Grandma meets the Queen this weeks book giveaway !
Grandma has been busy over the past few years. She's starred in three bestselling picture books already - her adventures during her first week off were followed by a stint with the All Blacks and then her old friend Father Christmas needed her help, which saw her standing in for him, delivering toys to the world's children. So it's about time she had another holiday, and this time she's taken her cat, Scratch, with her to London. Naturally she meets the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, and in no time at all she's helping out at the Palace.
A delightful romp through the sights of London with our favourite Gran as the tried-and-trusted combination of Helen McKinlay and Craig Smith takes us on a trip to meet the Queen, and show her how to make marmalade.
Author Helen McKinlay lives and works in Christchurch and has been a professional mediator, midwife, piano teacher, rural librarian and lifestyle farmer.
Illustrator Craig Smith lives and works in Victoria, Australia, and is the illustrator for the successful Emily Eyefinger series.
