Life with Nana is perfect: she always has time to bake fresh chocolate chip cookies, tell wonderful bedtime stories, and knit cozy mittens and socks and turtleneck sweaters. Perfect, that is, until she meets Bob. All of a sudden, Nana’s too busy for baking and storytelling and knitting. She’s spending her time talking on the phone, giggling, taking long bubble baths, singing love songs, and putting on makeup! What can one aggrieved little boy do to get back Nana – just the way she was?
Complemented by the playful, quirky, chalk-pastel art of Georgia Graham, Nana’s Getting Married will ring a familiar bell with every child who has had to share the attention of a beloved adult. What’s more, it demonstrates hilariously that love has nothing to do with age.

Praise for Nana’s Getting Married:
“…this message about open-mindedness and acceptance hits its mark.”
“It is a pleasure to find a picture book whose strong message is matched with a light touch…. Highly Recommended.”
