There's more trouble afoot for the little girl whose Granny is a (shhh, whisper it) witch, whom we first met in Hubble Bubble Granny Trouble. Granny just loves to magic things along and a trip to the supermarket is anything but ordinary. However, Pandora quite likes things to be normal(ish) and when fishfingers start flying around she soon tells her Granny to behave. But when Pandora spots a couple of robbers up to no good, an extra-ordinary magical Granny is exactly what's needed! "My granny's rather ...different, as you can plainly see. Her handbag pops and hisses and her pets are slippery! Her house is in a quiet street although it's kind of batty! She'd have the neighbours round for tea, except they're not that chatty"
"Carla goes shopping, and gets up to all sorts of thingsText type: Literary Recount
This book contains a collection of incidents involving shopping with Ding-A-Ling, my mother-in-law. It is not meant to ridicule her, but simply is a recounting of her ways of twisting words and thoughts. She was born with an obvious learning disability. It is difficult for her to find appropriate words and to pronounce them correctly. As a person who was blessed at birth with the ability to manipulate words, I think the good Lord put me with Ding-A-Ling on purpose. My job has been to straighten out the grammatical mistakes she has made; she, however, has viewed this in a different light. I am sure she has always felt that I have been making fun of her. Nothing could be further from the truth; I have only wanted to keep others from ridiculing her. Many people think Ding-A-Ling's mistakes are due to senility. At her age, this could be partially true. I have concluded, however, that deep inside her brain is more intelligence than people give her credit for. Her ability to analyze numbers is phenomenal. It is simply a case of an area of her brain not operating correctly when the manipulation of words is required.
