What kind of granny are you? Traditional Gran? Rock ‘n’ Roll Gran? Perhaps you’re more Sporty Gran (forever breezing in from the golf course or flying off for a week’s scuba-diving in the sun)…

In this delightful new book, Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall features 50 deliciously recognisable types – from Glam Gran (she descends on the newborn’s cradle like a fairy godmother with her designer baby clothes and cashmere wraps) to Wise Gran (she knows by instinct how to get a burp out of a baby and how to comfort a colicky one…)

Charmingly illustrated with Alex Fox’s cartoons, The Pocket Book of Good Grannies is a celebration of grandmotherhood in all its guises. There’s a Granny in here for everyone.
