I just finished reading it!
Good Granny / Bad Granny.
It's fabulous.
I, [an old guy] love children's books.

And as such, I am not sure who will love this book more, the kids being read to, or the adults that are reading it to them!
The latter will be snickering, and alternating between nodding and shaking their heads. The kids will just be giggling. Maybe, like the legendary Flintstones cartoon, it is isn't even MEANT for children!

"Good Granny prepares nourishing lunches of salads and whole wheat bread."
"Bad Granny orders fried chicken by the bucket, with a side order of fries."

"Good Granny takes her grandchildren to the mall to shop for educational toys."
"Bad Granny takes them to the mall and teaches them to max out their parents' credit cards."

The above examples are two of my favorites in this new book.
Written by Mary McHugh, and wonderfully illustrated by Patricia Storms.
With each turn of the page, a reader, [or listener] is greeted by a new dichotomy of the ages-old conflict between Good and Evil.... no, not so much "evil" ' just bad.
Good to the left. '' Bad to the right.
And no, not so much "bad" even, as "flawed".
Or hmmm... delightfully misguided! As so many grannies tend to be.
Let's face it, it's the bad grannies that give us the giggle-moments.

In fact, this is perhaps the only downside to this book.
It is sure to engender a two-fold conundrum.
Firstly, kids will wish that their "good" or even half-bad grannies were a bit more badder.
And secondly, "good" or even half-good grannies will be reading and thinking, "You know. That second scenario does sound like a lot more fun!"

"Good Granny takes her children to the science museum and walks them through the giant model of the beating heart."
"Bad granny takes her grandchildren to Daytona Beach and drives them around the track at 180 miles per hour."

I thought the book, Good Granny, Bad Granny, was quite hilarious. I bought one for myself and a few more for friends. I would say that I am probably more in the "bad" Granny category, which I believe is a good thing! Anyone who still bakes a lot, stays home a lot, or is very domestic in any way, would probably not get as much enjoyment as I from this book.

This little book is cleverly written with cute illustrations. Any new Granny will appreciate the humor unless they are not able to share the role of being a grandmother with the "other" side of the family. With that said let's just say that this little book points out that all grandmothers will have a space in their little ones lives - even though some may be more colorful than others.

The book is a great read, it very funny and great for any grandmother. However, when I received the book, the cover paper was tearing away from the spine. When I opened it to read it, it ripped even more.

I bought to give to a new gran, and was embarrassed to see someone's personal message to another was in there. It shouldn't have been on the market for sale!

We gave this book to my son's granny (my mom), and she loved it. It's adorable. The illustrations are funny. I don't know how it would hold up as a book read to children, only because we simply gave it to an adult as a present and did not read it to my son. But it made a great gift.

I got this gift for my Grandmother for Christmas. I would recommend this to anyone that has a Grandmom with a sense of humor. Be prepared to tell your Granny which one you think she is once she finishes, I know my grandma asked me :) Overall, it's a cute gift and a fun, short read.

Cute little book. Perfect for the new Grandmother. I can see myself in both the Good Granny and the Bad Granny. I purchased 5 additional books after my first one and gave them to my friends.
