Travel along on Great Grandma's Astonishing Adventures! This heart-warming journey with Great Grandma and her adorable, devoted, and very large ginger cat, Mincemeat, begins in the 1950s in their cottage atop a hill in the English countryside near the village of Howdoyoudo. Great Grandma is a lovely little old lady with silver grey hair and sparkly blue eyes. Her cat Mincemeat loves cooking, especially baking! Be surprised by some rascally recipes (never to be tried at home!) Sail away with Great Grandma and Mincemeat in the Magic Raspberry to an island castle. Visit cousins by submarine and discover an underwater world. Be dazzled by a silver space ship made out of marzipan and icing! Find yourself amongst the stars! Join Great Grandma and Mincemeat for tea with The Man in The Moon, and then on to a feast on Planet Gobble! Be sure to come aboard for your ride on Theo, the runaway train, and watch out for flying pancakes! The stories and colourful illustrations will delight both children and adults alike. A delicately conveyed moral message unfolds, as evocative scenes are painted in vivid detail. You will be transported right alongside Great Grandma and Mincemeat, sharing their truly astonishing adventures! At times, you'll even laugh out loud! Lois Davis also writes poems and local magazine articles. This is her first book and the first in a series of Great Grandma books. She lives with her husband by the sea in Dorset, England.
