9781770492219: Here Comes Hortense!

The feisty, irrepressible Nana we met in Nana’s Getting Married is back. And what could be more fun for a six-year-old than having your nana and her new husband take you to a theme park? But the fun is spoiled when Nana and Bob announce that they’ve planned a surprise: they are going to be joined by Bob’s granddaughter, Hortense. It turns out to be the worst surprise ever. Nana shares her room with Hortense instead of her disgruntled little grandson. She sings her special good-night song to Hortense. She goes on all the scary rides with Hortense. And, worst of all, Hortense has a special name for Nana.
 
A perceptive and hilarious exploration of rivalry, there’s a gentle lesson for readers, young and old.

Georgia Graham lives on a tree farm in central Alberta with her husband and dog, Ginger.

Review:

 “...Hartt-Sussman's narrative touch is deft. Graham's chalk pastels, a wacky delight from start to finish, bring appropriate lift to what could be a melancholy story. Her characters are uniquely quirky yet have a streak of photographic realism. Warm and offbeat.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 
“...Georgia Graham’s artwork is truly delightful.... The drawings suit the story so well and are complemented with large bold text in many strategic places.... The results are playful, quirky, colourful and action-packed artwork!”
—Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“In a well told story, Hartt-Sussman gently captures all the feelings of jealousy and exclusion as well as the very real love between grandparents and grandchildren (and between Bob and Nana) and brings it to a satisfying conclusion.”
Canadian Children’s Book News

“Graham’s exaggerated chalk pastels feature a lurid carnival palette and in-your-face characterizations, providing a comedic balance to the boy’s pained emotional state.”
Publishers Weekly
