Older Not Wiser (Bad Nana #1)
Jeanie’s Grandma is BAD. Not bad like a vampire or a gangster or anything, more like . . . up to no good. Sometimes she can be a bit embarrassing but most of the time she’s REALLY fun, especially when she gets Jeanie involved in her mischievous schemes. Everyone says she’s old enough to know better . . . but she doesn’t seem to care one bit. In fact, Jeanie thinks she might quite like it!
Bad Nana is a deliciously wicked new series for ages six and up, told through the eyes of 7 3/4-year-old Jeanie. Gorgeously illustrated throughout with vibrantly coloured spreads, Bad Nana’s naughty exploits will shock and appall – and make you snort with laughter!
This also had a very British vibe similar to Pichon's Tom Gates, although not nearly enough tea is drunk. Parks in the US (at least in the suburbs or rural areas) don't have as many fences and rules, and certainly don't have park keepers in little sheds, although that seems to be an outdated reference even in the UK.
This would make a great choice for a grandparent to read with a grandchild while they make their own plans to travel around with a well-stocked hand bag wreaking havoc and irritating stuffy people around them.
