"Missy Moo and the Big Visit" explores the thoughts and interpretations of Missy as she prepares for a visit with her grandmother. Grey turns the musings into a detailed description of child-like adoration and joy as she delves into the near universal excitement of spending time with fun-loving grandparents. The language of this journey is filled with sentiments created from the point of view of a doting granddaughter as she recounts her grandmother's silly and sometimes unbelievable ways. Not only did Missy's grandmother once have a monkeypotamus, but she can fly a plane with no wings (even if she sings "waaaaay" off-key)!
The introduction of Christine Tribou's illustrations provide a colorful and dreamy palette for Missy's adventure. With visions of grandma in her floral dresses and the crook of her little nose, Tribou completes the imagery lurking in a child's dreams. The pictures offer the perfect bridge between Grey's words and our imaginations.
"Missy Moo and the Big Visit" is a wonderful addition to any child's library. It is now available from KCL Publishing.
