Sneak a peek at the contents of granny's purse in this awesome die-cut, interactive board book by Paul Hanson!
Along with a short story about Granny's love of life and adventure (and Mommy's preference for good manners), this bulging purse has some crazy things hidden inside. Sturdy Velcro locks together the easy-to-tote handles -- complete with a key chain fastened to them -- while the pages inside have flaps to open, strings to untie, and compartments to look inside. The international section of Granny's purse, for example, includes a lift-the-flap passport; an air-mail envelope containing a loose cardboard tea bag and postcard; and cardboard sunglasses that can be removed. In the gadget compartment ("My mommy always tells me, 'be careful.' My granny says, 'be prepared!' "), Granny has a big wrench, a screwdriver, a toothbrush, and aspirin. Plenty of other sections are loaded with eye candy as well, and the last page even has a signature polka-dot hankie attached.
A zany book that's a pure original, this overstuffed treat will elicit laughs on every page! For anyone who's familiar with an older woman's bag, the book is sure to provide surprises and giggles that will keep readers coming back for more. Like the buried items Granny keeps tucked away, kids are bound to get lost in My Granny's Purse. Matt Warner
