Acadian Mémère and Scottish Nannie seem to have nothing in common but their grandchildren, but in this endearing picture book from bestselling author Diane Carmel Léger and noted illustrator Jean-Luc Trudel, difference is celebrated. A co-publication with New Brunswick’s award-winning Bouton d’or Acadie and simultaneously published in French, Nannie and  Mémère is a whimsically illustrated, heartwarming tale of the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, and a celebration of family, of all shapes and sizes.

About the authors

For twenty years, Diane Carmel Léger lived in Victoria, British Columbia, where she taught French Immersion and wrote books in both French and English.Yet, it was her homesickness for the Maritimes that led her to writing over twenty-five years ago. Diane is now living near her native village of Memramcook which was called la-butte-à-Pétard before the deportation of 1755. La butte à Pétard, the French version of this book, is an Acadian bestseller.
