Booklist Review

Our bespectacled little narrator loves her grandmother, a helpful person who wants to please but whose ability to perform magic makes her stand out from her peers. Granny and granddaughter agree to prepare for the child's birthday party magic-free, resulting in a lopsided cake, muddy face painting, and in spite of it all a good time for the birthday girl and guests. Of course, come cleanup time, some magic is welcome. Especially when depicting effervescent Granny, Berger's pen-and-ink cartoons whiz and pop with colorful digital washes, showing a diverse cast of kids and some fantastical details, such as the mansard-roofed mansion used as a rabbit hutch. The rhyming text is expertly cadenced to show both Granny's energy and her granddaughter's more timid approach to making changes. A good storytime companion to Janet Lord and Julie Paschkis' Here Comes Grandma! (2005) and for younger fans of Deborah Hautzig's Little Witch series.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist
