Editorial Reviews

Pearl’s got a whole host of problems, not the least of which is a mom who doesn’t seem to have time for her, and the one solution she’s come up with is to find a grandma. Beloved children’s author Morris Gleitzman is at the top of his game with Water Wings, the humorous story of Pearl; her guinea pig, Winston; and her new "gran". Comedian and actor Mary-Anne Fahey takes the task of performing this comical adventure with an expert ear, jumping from the bright Pearl to grouchy Howard with ease. Children are sure to fall for this wacky tale from one of Australia’s most famous children’s authors.

Publisher's Summary

'What I need,' said Pearl as she started to slide off the roof, 'is a grandmother.' Where do you get a top gran at short notice? It's not easy, but Pearl's got Winston to help her, and you can do anything when your best friend is the world's brainiest guinea pig. Then Pearl meets Gran and the surprises begin. A moving and unforgettable story from Australia's funniest children's author.

Book of Death

This book is about euthanasia. First a Guinea Pig gets it and then Grandma. Consider yourself warned. Not for children under 12.
