From a new British illustrator, a cheery intergenerational good time. When the narrator's parents leave her at Grandma's place near the ocean, "Mom and Dad give her strict instructions to 'WEAR ME OUT?"' No problem - Grandma's energy is as boundless as any child's: she puts in a day's worth of baking and cleaning by eight a.m., in time for an active day at the beach, romping like a kid and hanging on to enough residual oomph to cajole her granddaughter back up the hill ("'s easier if you go sideways, like crabs") and into a bath. Dexter's sunny illustrations, simply outlined in bold black and filled in with bright watercolor in solid areas with just a suggestion of texture, make a fine complement. A fresh look at a perennial theme. (Kirkus Reviews)
