Encyclopedia of Grannies Author: Eric Veillé
Why do grandmas tell us to speak slowly? Why do grandmas wear their hair up? Are grandmas flexible? How do you cheer grandmas up? Eric Veillé explains it all with wit and charm—how they wear their hair, how they do yoga, how they travel the world, their wise sayings, their knitting.
A funny, funky book full of word play, answering all your questions about grandmas—especially the ones you never thought to ask.

Veillé is no stranger to this list (with 2017’s My Pictures After the Storm), but in terms of sheer oddness, this one blows his previous work out of the water. It’s a completely bonkers, gleefully silly guide to grandmothers of all stripes.
This is a hilarious tongue-in-cheek book all about grannies. We learn where they go, their vocabulary, how old they are and all about their moods. It’s very clever in the detail and play on words, but will your granny think so?
