One morning, Lily asks her Grandma, "What will you be when you grow up?" Although Grandma's pretty sure that she's already an adult, that doesn't stop Lily from picturing her as someone who gleefully disrupts school, paints rainbows on children's faces, flies around the world on calico wings, grows flowers that never die, and turns into a fairy who cleans messy rooms clean with a wave of her wand. Given the choice, though, Grandma concludes that she'd rather be a lady with a granddaughter named Lily, and that suits them both just fine. In this story for readers and listeners up to 7—and their grandmothers, of course—actress Nanette Newman believably re-creates the logic of young children. A pupil of Quentin Blake and a Kate Greenaway Medal nominee for I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!, Emma Chichester Clark's watercolor and pencil illustrations are colorful, cozy, and lighthearted.
