Grandma is preparing breakfast when some unexpected visitors from the nearby sea decide to drop in for a friendly visit. There’s a giant octopus with some orange juice, and a blue mermaid brings some fruits too... are they here to help with breakfast?
Breakfast at Granny’s breaks stereotypes with humour and draws our attention to the beauty of the everyday and the joys of imagination; a book to be enjoyed by the whole family.
