Review

Helen McKinlay's hip, feisty, and techno-savvy Grandma will delight children and adults alike.

The humorous narrative is perfectly complimented by detailed, zany illustrations that together bring the vibrant characters to life.

From pohutukawa trees to rugby balls and barbeques, Grandma's Kiwi Christmas is a quirky story filled with Kiwiana that all New Zealanders will relate to.

Satine and her year 0-1 class mates just LOVE this book.  Without a doubt, Grandma's Kiwi Christmas is a must for every little Kiwi's book collection.
