Bad Nana: Older Not Wiser

Sophy Henn

Jeanie’s Grandma is BAD. Not bad like a vampire or a gangster or anything, more like… up to no good. Sometimes she can be a bit embarrassing but most of the time she’s REALLY fun, especially when she gets Jeanie involved in her mischievous schemes. Everyone says she’s old enough to know better… but she doesn’t seem to care one bit. In fact, Jeanie thinks she might quite like it!

Bad Nana is a deliciously wicked new series for ages six and up, told through the eyes of 8-year-old Jeanie. Gorgeously illustrated throughout with vibrantly coloured spreads, Bad Nana’s naughty exploits will shock and appal - and make you snort with laughter!


Bad Nana is not like Jeanie’s other grandparents. Bad Nana is often up to no good, but she is always good fun. Bad Nana wears a lot of black, and has a pink cat named Liberace. She’s been known to cause disruptions at line-dancing club, and, with a whoopee cushion among the surprises in her enormous black handbag, she loves nothing more than to pull off hilarious pranks at the expense of bullies and bores.

This book has a really cool, highlighter pink and black colour scheme that reflects Bad Nana’s punk style and her love of a little pink flair (on super-special occasions Bad Nana likes to wear her sparkly pink turban). The illustrations are bold and the text design is exciting; it all looks very fresh and appealing. Bad Nana is great fun to read together, perhaps with a favourite, cheeky grandparent, and is also perfect for budding independent readers aged 6–8.
