Kirsty and Grannie walk through the countryside. 'Hi-ya, Bull-moos; hi-ya Tup Baas,' calls the small girl. There is masses of visual detail, and a simple child-centred text - the two work perfectly together to create a rhythmic book for sharing.
Mairie Hedderwick is famous for her depiction of characers and rural life in the best-selling Katie Morag series. In A Walk with Grannie, she does what she does best. In vibrant singing watercolours, she traces the steps of Grannie and her small charge, past sheep, ducks, and Highland cattle - all the way around the farms and back. But a journey is never simple with Hedderwick. Her uniquely detailed artist's eye pinpoints the escapades and humour in the natural world which will so excite and enthral her young readers.
