A traditional sort of tale from a up-and-coming publisher.

A bespectacled little girl has a most unusual grandma. She's a witch, complete with spells, cats, bats and pointy hat. In this post-Harry Potter age, you'd think that would be a boon. But sometimes the girl wishes her granny was, well, normal. Only when she's tried to make this happen does she realise just how special her supernatural granny is.

It's a rhyming celebration of individuality and difference, then, but 
with the emphasis on fun rather than the message - and with perhaps a whiff of Bewitched into the bargain. Visually it's bright, jolly, and pleasingly old-school: evidently Granny knows where her local vintage clothes supplier is. In all this is an upbeat unalloyed treat.
