Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Granny would rather stay at home in her nightie, but her insistent granddaughter dolls her up and drags her out to an after-hours party at the zoo. Once there, the woman becomes the belle of the ball, waltzing and twirling with monkeys, a rhino, and a particularly handsome bear. After hours of dancing, grandmother and granddaughter return home on the train, tuckered out but dreaming of the next wild celebration. Winthrop's rhyming text is well paced and a delight to read aloud. Granny's farewell to her bear beau is particularly endearing: "`You'll come again, you won't forget?'/the eager bear called out./She shut her eyes, she pursed her lips/and kissed him on his snout." Murdocca's spreads are riots of color and activity, with creatively imagined animal guests preening and prancing. Children will find new details upon repeated readings, from the stately bear in his stars-and-stripes tuxedo and top hat to the tiger decked out … la Carmen Miranda to the snake sporting a single sneaker. A charming tale for bedtime or storytime.

Format: Hardcover
Dancing Granny is a zany and entertaining picture book by Elizabeth Winthrop about a special bond between a grandmother and her grandchild. On a visit to the zoo, the Granny is asked "may I have this dance?" and celebrates with an eager bear, six silly monkeys, and others for a fun-filled time. Joyous and colorful illustrations by Salvatore Murdocca beautifully showcase the singsong rhyming verse which characterizes this delightful and original story of fun and nonsense.

After many trips to the library to check out and recheck this book for my three year old granddaughter, I decided to purchase it for her. She loves it, lost count of the times we've read it. Can't go wrong with this one.

We got this book from Amazon as it is not sold in shops in our country. My two year old just loves this book and can now recite the whole thing! A favourite for us all!
