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.

About the Author:

Mairie Hedderwick was born in Gourrock. She left the mainland for the Isle of Coll where she and her crofting husband brought up their young family. She has never quite left the island - and still returns to paint, and to ponder the island life which has enriched her craft for so long.

Review:

The appeal of this particular book lies in the simple text, which is very child-friendly and in the tiny details in the illustrations. * Writing Magazine * a feast of visual detail and a simple child centred text work prefectly together to create a rhytmic book for sharing * reading evening post * The vibrant, singing water-colours are a joy * Books Magazine * A feast of visual detail and a simple child-centred text -- the two work perfectly together to create a rhythmic book for sharing * Reading ALIVE * Hedderwick always avoids the saccharine whilst portraying close families, and her subtle humour pleases the adult reader as well * Children's Buyer's Guide: Spring 2003 * Exuberant ... gorgeous ... and dramatic ... Hedderwick's books always bubble with life * The Glasgow Herald *
