Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble
Candlewick Press/Random House
by Tracey Corderoy, illustrated by Joe Berger
Synopsis from Random House:
In this rhyming text, a little girl whose granny is (shhhh!) a witch just wants her gran to be like all the other grans, with a normal pet and nicely done hair. But when she realizes that her reformed granny is bored and boring, there’s nothing to do but cook up a big pot of gloppy soup with granny and all of her frogs, cats, and bats!
Kids can be funny, full of creativity and imagination but expecting things to react and behave a certain way, just like the young girl in Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble. Whether it’s granny, a friend or even mom, kids might think they want what their friends have, a well behaved ‘just like everyone else’ normal relative, until they actually get their wish.
Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble takes things to the extreme, with the young girl’s granny being a witch, but the premise of wanting to fit in still holds true with most kids. The story opens an opportunity to talk about what makes the important people in our lives special, what makes us all unique. Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble is a great read for the Halloween season and beyond.
