Book Launch: ‘Mia’s Glamma’ with Carla Hoffenberg & Josie Montano
Join us for the launch of ‘Mia’s Glamma’ and further children’s activities at Harry Hartog Marrickville!
Mia’s grandma is no ordinary grandmother.
She is a very busy grandmother who is curious, fashionable and adventurous. Mia calls her Glamma.
Glamma always has time to share her love of the world with her granddaughter Mia, so is she just like any other grandmother?
‘A funny, heartfelt celebration of grand-parenting. The illustrations perfectly capture the love and humour within the story. A wonderful collaboration.’ – Leonie Tyle, Editor
‘Children just like Mia will relate to her enthusiastic and energetic Glamma. This positive representation of a young at heart grandmother who can do anything and everything is long awaited. ‘ – Pauline McLeod, Children’s and YA Specialist, Riverbend Books, Bulimba
