Story time at Granny's house is always an adventure

The bond between grandchild and grandparent is perhaps the most heartwarming to observe, and most gratifying to experience through the course of our lives.

When Granny tells a Story, the new picture book from gifted artist Fran Evans, celebrates this bond, and those special stories that are sewn into the fabric of the relationships of any family.

When Granny tells a story
She opens up a box,
The fire pops and crackles,
The old clock ticks and tocks.

Granny is the family storyteller. Her memory box is full of trinkets that inspire stories to delight - from childhood games of long ago, to watching her children grow. The grandchildren have their favourites that they beg to hear time and time again - even when Grandad is ready to fall asleep! Story time at Granny's house is always an adventure.

In When Granny Tells a Story, the treasures of yesteryear are used as a device to prompt the memory and release the stories attached to them. And Fran Evans' stunning illustrations, teeming with detail, bring these personal treasures to life. Family photographs, a padlock, buttons of various shapes and sizes, a key ring, a shell - merely random objects to an outsider, but to Granny, they are the treasures of a lifetime, lovingly collected and each with their own story to be told. Fran Evans takes these special things and weaves their stories into the different generations within one family, creating a bond of shared experience and collective memory. This closeness is portrayed perfectly in her pictures - their warm tones and soft lines ooze tenderness and create a heartwarming coziness, as we are invited into Granny's magical world.

A delightful book for young and old alike, When Granny Tells a Story is sure to become a favourite with children across the country.

Granny has a beautiful memory box made for her by Grandad, a place where she can keep all kind of objects that have a special meaning for her, from the farm animals she played with as a child, through mementoes of amazing journeys and the childhood of her own children, right up to the present day. Her grandchildren love to listen to the stories these mementoes evoke.

The stories are told through the lovely and magical illustrations which are full of wonderful detail that a child can spend hours poring over.
And there is a surprise at the end which any child would like to copy . . .
