Submitter: I found this book while looking for titles to weed that had never been checked out. The cover & title seem harmless enough, but it’s what’s inside that had us rolling with laughter. The grandmas depicted are rotund and partially clothed for most of the book. I doubt elementary students want to check out a book with illustrations of big, saggy-breasted elderly women in it. I also wonder about whether it’s particularly respectful to grab a handful of your granny’s ” wobbly bottom.”
Holly: This is a cute book, but definitely a little odd. “Big bras,” “saggy underwear,” and “bristly chins” aren’t the nicest way to describe your granny! It’s old enough that you can probably weed it without much backlash.
