A delightful book about an unusual grandma’s adventures with her granddaughter, Bad Nana is a riot of bright colour and laugh-out-loud moments, with a gentle story about friendship and overcoming bullying underneath it. In this vibrant new illustrated series by Sophy Henn, readers are introduced to Jeanie and her very large family, including a rather naughty nanny. Similar to Henn's Pizazz with big font (some bigger and bolder than others for emphasis) and illustrations on almost every page, but I didn't find the story as funny as Pizazz. Sometimes she can be a bit embarrassing but most of the time she’s REALLY fun, especially when she gets Jeanie involved in her mischievous schemes.

her first book, was nominated for both the Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2015. I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic! Her Nana isn't bad in the traditional sense like stealing or other crime committing, though she does love the stories that come with them from others like in the news. The font keeps switching on certain words and the size would grow or shrink on other words, and the constant change began to give me a headache.Cheeky and sometimes rude, Bad Nana's behaviour usually results in 'BIG TROUBLE'; she should know better but she doesn't and Jeanie regularly finds herself hoping that her Nana will not do anything to embarrass her. The characters are loveable,Bad Nana is a true and proper legend,I have no words to properly describe just how fabulous she is. We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. Bad Nana is a deliciously wicked new series for ages six and up, told through the eyes of 7 3/4-year-old Jeanie. The book is separated into mini stories about Jeanie and her Nana getting into trouble and out of it again.

Jeanie is seven years old, with a large extended family including her mum, dad, younger brother, three nana's including Bad Nana and her aunts, uncles and cousins too.This might get a little giggle from some very little kids but it isn't that exciting, the characters don't grow and change that much so it doesn't stay with you, in your heart. There are a few incidents in the story, the main ones being an intro to nana, a park incident and a museum. Most importantly, we are introduced to Bad Nana (not her actual name, but no one can remember that) who likes a little bit of twinkle, copious amounts of lemon sherbets, and has a pink cat. Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned.

The first introduces Bad Nana, the second is an adventure in the park, and the third is a trip to the local history Museum.

Henn’s decision to use a fabulous pink neon colour to dominate her lively illustrations fits in perfectly with the content of the stories – Bad Nana’s face when she gets angry, the park keeper’s uniform and Liberace the cat – it works brilliantly.But to justify how Jeanie didn’t like her younger brother just a little bit was not my favorite part because Jeanie experienced bullies from Georgina and the museum guy, she should know how it feels to be disliked.
