Stella Blackstone has written many best-selling titles for Barefoot Books, including the popular Bear and Cleo series and An Island In the Sun (2002). Her stories have been translated into a number of languages. Stella lives in Somerset with her three children, two dogs and two cats. Christopher Corr was born in London and studied at The Royal College of Art. His round-the-world travels have provided much inspiration for his work, and his first trip to India in 1986 resulted in a one person show entitled 'Wel-come To India' which was followed by a book and a short BBC TV film of the same name. Recently The Royal Mail sent Christopher to Bosnia to paint the Peace-Keeping troops for a commemorative stamp in the Millennium Stamps Project. My Granny Went to Market is his first title for Barefoot Books.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Granny's quest to buy a few specialty items leads to a fantastical flight to the markets of the world. She begins in Istanbul where she purchases a flying carpet and uses it to make her way to various countries, acquiring gifts before ending up in Peru. Along the way, readers practice counting as the woman accumumlates items, such as two temple cats in Thailand and seven nesting dolls in Russia. Bright folk art enlivens the journey and is a perfect complement to the rhythmic prose. Granny's charming imperatives lead the way from place to place and keep the pace perfect for the youngest of readers and listeners. Each page delights the senses and opens young eyes to the world around them. A fresh and lively addition.-Holly T. Sneeringer, University of Maryland, Baltimore
