Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—An unnamed boy's wonderful Nana no longer bakes cookies, knits, or tells stories because she has a boyfriend. Her grandson thinks her new relationship is "gross" and doesn't approve. But when Nana decides to marry Bob and tells the boy that she still loves him and that he can sometimes spend weekends with them, he has a sudden change of heart. While the concept is laudable, the execution is lacking. The child, who appears to be about six, shows his displeasure by running away, throwing tantrums, and pretending to be sick. Yet he says, "I think the clothes… are dreadful, not to mention inappropriate," which lends him a distinctly older sensibility. Also, his abrupt turnaround lacks credibility. Graham's garishly unappealing cartoon illustrations are reminiscent of David Shannon's work in The Rain Came Down (Scholastic, 2000) minus the charm. The characters are pop-eyed and have oversize heads, skinny necks, and round bodies. Nana has prominent teeth and looks anything but cuddly, and the narrator's verdict on the inappropriateness of her clothing is spot-on. The audience for this story is a mystery.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT

Praise for Nana’s Getting Married:
“…this message about open-mindedness and acceptance hits its mark.”
Publishers Weekly
“It is a pleasure to find a picture book whose strong message is matched with a light touch…. Highly Recommended.”
—CM Magazine
“…such a refreshing, contemporary take on an issue that lots of children have to learn to deal with: sharing the attention of an adult they love. And you don’t have to be a kid to appreciate Georgia Graham’s fun illustrations.”
Canadian Living

This book was wonderfully done. It is the story of a young boy who likes things they way they are. Nana lives with them and he has her all to himself. She makes him cookies and lets him eat the dough; she knits him socks, and mittens and sweaters and spends a lot of time with him. Then Nana meets Bob, and they start dating. And her grandson DOES NOT APPROVE. He does everything he can to interfere with the relationship. Then Nana sits him down and explains that she loves Bob and Bob loves her and together they are happy. So Nana is getting married and he realizes he will have to share her forever. This is a great story with wonderful illustrations. It is a first book by Heather Hartt-Sussman, and she has done a great job on it.
