Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sprightly watercolors explore the special relationship between grandmothers and their grandchildren in this companion to Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants and Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug. In grandma's cherry-wallpapered kitchen, a laughing toddler explains, "Grandma calls me Gigglepie... a treat that's sweet and funny." And in rhyming couplets, animals share the terms of endearment given to them by their grandmas. A snake breaking through its shell is "Snaggletooth" ("see how I broke my egg?"), and a flamingo baby declares, "Grandma calls me Tricky Chick... hey, look! I'm on one leg!" Readers for whom a grandparent is a primary caregiver should especially value this buoyant affirmation of affection. Up to age 3. (Mar.)
