When everyone goes to Gramma’s for Christmas, things can get very silly! Families love spending time together during the holidays—but in all that togetherness is there room for one little girl, too?

About the authors

Brenda is the proud grandmother of two little girls nicknamed “Peanut” and “Muffin.” She lives with her husband, Guy, in Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. Her first book, How’s Peanut?, also illustrated by Wendi Nordell, details the stages of a baby’s growth before birth—and a grandma’s happy excitement as she waits for her new grandchild to arrive.

WENDI NORDELL has been drawing for as long as she could hold a pencil. It has always been a favourite pastime and eventually became an occasional job. While her three children were growing up, she painted many murals, including the pediatrics wing in a hospital, a school entrance, and in many homes. She also attended festivals and craft shows, selling hand-drawn gift cards, bookmarks, and illustrations. Now that her children are grown, she has pursued an illustration career, illustrating a dozen books in the last five years, mostly for children, but also including Edward Willett's science-fiction and fantasy poetry collection I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust. Recently, Wendi decided to improve her artistic skills and abilities by returning to the Alberta University of the Arts, pursuing a degree in illustration. Wendi has almost always picked up books based on their cover art, and if there are illustrations inside the book she thinks that’s even better. She truly hopes that her illustrations enhance readers' experience with books--including this one!
