About the Author
One of the author’s most exciting accomplishments is her new Children Books. Each child is welcome to meet adorable characters as they short stories written in rhyme. Bonus chapters are added in each book allowing the child extra interaction through coloring. Granny Has A Whisker is a humorous rhyming story about old age. Often children can be a little afraid of the elderly appearance. The short story eliminates all fear by laughing some of the “features” which every dark haired woman unfortunately experiences in real life except not to the degree of Granny. I picture Granny with her whiskers in a rocking chair swallowing flies! I don’t know why she grew a beard, but I think it’s weird!

But Renee's surprised me. My newest niece has just arrived a few weeks ago and I was put in charge of the older ones. :)
I bought the first of Renee's book and they loved it. So I bought all of them for each one of them because her stories are funny and talk about "awkward" or loving moments. This one especially reminded me of my grandmother. Yes, she had a whisker and I loved it!
Her books remind me of Andersen's tale, "The Emperor's New Clothes", not because she writes about adults, but because she writes about those exact moments children sputter that the emperor is naked(!) when everyone is pretending to be watching the spectacular parade of his new clothes.
The way she deals with those things children found funny or "different" in older people is just special and could only have come from a gentle, creative and sensitive mind.
Her writing has a brush of poetry, which make the words sing out of the page and keep the small one curious of the next rhyme. It's simple enough for them to grasp the message and meanings and yet, it's beautiful and singular and it keeps the adult tuned to the story, which is very important, imo. It also reminds us of those very moments - strange, different and yet cherished, because they will stay with us forever.
And last, but not least, in the end of each book, there are "chapters" - images, in fact - added that allows children to interact with Renee's characters and develop new, creative stories based on what they have heard (or read) and experience.
My waddle is their favorite target.
If I were a grandma instead of a grandpa, they would probably be after my big old whisker just like in this cute little book.
