Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Syndicated columnist Wyse ( Grandmother's Treasures ) surveys the experience of grandparenting, strewing anecdotes, cliches and children's clever sayings as she goes, along with smart comments about relations between children and their elders. Although she is a dedicated storyteller and preserver of family traditions, this grandmother is no rocking-chair, cake-baking stalwart, but instead asserts a grandmother's rights to dance, party, operate computers and send faxes, have boyfriends, remarry and enjoy ``fun without all that responsibility.'' With coy declarations about ``parents being our mutual enemy,'' Wyse emphasizes grandparents' roles as confidants and chronicles bonding of the young and old. (May)
