LeaveMeAlone1.pngWhy I like this book: An editor at Roaring Brook showed me this one back in February, and I have been sooo good at waiting sooo long to share it with you! I love finding picture books with an adult as the main protagonist, and I have totally fallen for this snarky Grandmother! Actually, I fell for the cover straight away! AND it’s a great read-aloud! The superb color palette and beautifully rendered compositions are icing on the cake!

  2. Now this is getting ridiculous, Julie…I’m making my way through Susanna’s link up and there are just too many books that I totally need to have! And this one is a definite must buy! I actually wrote a folktale-like pb about a grandmother…nothing like this one…but maybe I need to pull it out, dust it off, and snd it to Essie.
    Thanks so much for sharing this one…I love it!
