A laugh-aloud picture book celebrating nannas everywhere from a talented author and illustrator team.
Some nannas dress in pink when they jog around the track.
But my nanna is a ninja … so she dresses up in black.
All nannas are different.
But what if your nanna was really different?
What if your nanna was a ninja?
This fun, poetic picture book portrays the many different guises, faces and personalities that nannas can have and demonstrates the significance of their role in the modern family.
