Description

Everyone's favourite Wee Granny is back with her magic bag, and Emily and Harry are desperate to see what she's got inside it today.

It's the day of the school ceilidh, and they have to pick up last-minute supplies before the celebrations and dancing can begin. But things don't go smoothly -- they miss their bus and then a flood closes the road. Does Wee Granny have something in her magic bag to save the day?

This brilliant follow-up to the hugely popular Wee Granny's Magic Bag, starring a tartan Mary Poppins, offers a wonderful mix of colourful illustrations and an engaging story with surprises on every page!

Reviews

'Maw Broon meets Mary Poppins in this cheerful story for young readers. [...] Bogade's cartoon-like illustratons in ink and watercolour are reminiscent of the Scottish Comics tradition of the Beano and the Dandy.'
--School Library Association
