Who’s borrowing grannies? And why?! A wacky and funny page-turning adventure for children aged 7-11.

Grannies aren’t where they should be, but Sally McNally is quickly on the case …
Laura’s circus gran wasn’t on time to give her a ride to school.

Ben’s karate gran didn’t bring his dinner money.

And now Sally’s own beloved Granny Knot and Granny Loaf have gone missing during afternoon tea!

Sally follows a trail of cake crumbs up to the mysterious Giant’s Crag where, high on the mountain, she hatches a daring escape plan to free one hundred and two grannies and get them home where they belong.

Can she save the grannies from being borrowed forever? Or will the Granny Borrower get in her way?

A wacky and funny modern fairytale adventure, featuring a friendly young giant, adoring grannies, and lessons about learning to do things for yourself!

The Granny Borrower is jam-packed with humour, mystery and delightfully lovable characters. With numerous TV and stage adaptations, translations in over 30 languages, and over a million books sold, it’s easy to see why David Bedford’s warm and wonderful stories are treasured by families across the world.
