It's Patrick's first sleep-over at his Granny's, but what is that boy to do when he can't go to bed because something is missing? And what will his Granny do when she discovers the missing something is a bed, and a pillow, and a blanket...and more? With her ladylike purse slung over one arm and a loaded toolbox over the other, this amazingly resourceful Granny—in a whirlwind of dusk to dawn activity—proves she can do whatever it takes! And does she finally get Patrick tucked in? Well, that's another story! Taken to delightfully silly extremes, this wickedly daffy stalling-at-bedtime romp contains scenes that exhausted whatever-it-takes adults will recognize and every almost-ready-for-bed kid will wish for! What! Cried Granny marks the impressive debut of two exciting new talents. Kate Lum drew on her own experiences as a cajoling parent to create this innovative not-quite-bedtime story. Adrian Johnson's artwork is inspired by his interest in the graphic designs of the 1950's and 1960's.
