Look at this old woman - what do you see? Wrong.
Gramma Tickle, elemental witch and possessor of a brain of rocking-horse proportions, takes a trip to the seaside to remind the sea of its obligations to her family. This year, however, she finds herself trying to faggle out a mystery. Why did a little doggie washed up on the beach neither live nor die? The answer lies in the fairground at the end of the pier, but does she have the courage to face the House of Fear? What do you think?
Amateur Grammatics is a novelette set in the Tworld - two worlds in neighboring dimensions that overlap. With laughs.
If you enjoy Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, the puntasticness of Piers Anthony, or the devilish wit of Douglas Adams, you'll love this little mystery and its arthritic hero.
Highly recommend to any Discworld fans. Grandma Tickle is very reminiscent of our favorite witches. Great writing. Puns abound. Now, off to read Strike!
fun to listen to, interesting storyline,highly recommend adorable , eccentric mayhaps a tiny bit scary.
I really enjoyed this audiobook. It is funny and quirky with lots of little unpredictable turns. I especially loved Grandma's "talk" with the sea at the beginning. Kevin Partner did a fantastic job narrating his story. His voices and wry undertones are wonderful. I imagine that is the benefit to being your own narrator. You have in your mind what the voices should sound like. Great job. It was lots of fun to listen to!
This was a fun book with various and continuous play on words. Narrated well to ensure the listener "gets it".
Recommended for those who can catch and appreciate it. Listen with sharp ears!
