Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Smart, warm, telling, and funny, Funny, Your Don't Look Like a Grandmother is the perfect bouquet for today's grandmother, that active and interesting woman who is old enough to be somebody's grandmother and young enough to run around the world.

Lois Wyse's new book, charmingly illustrated by Lilla Rogers, is a collection of wit and wisdom for today's Nana, Grandma, Goo-Goo, or Gran.

How can you recognize today's grandmother?

Easy, says Wyse.

The grandmother is the one who goes out more and complains less than her daughter. In the spirit of Erma Bombeck and Bill Cosby, Lois Wyse tells loving and amusing stories that illustrate the joys of contemporary grandmothering.

According to Lois Wyse, "A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do."

Contemporary grandmothers and their children and grandchildren will see themselves in these reflections of family life that include everything from how it feels to become a grandmother to gentle advice on parenting and career grandmothers.

Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother is the first nontraditional book about grandmothers who may not look like grandmothers — but who love as deeply as the generations of grannies who preceded them.

About the Author

Lois Wyse, a successful advertising entrepreneur, is the author of more than 40 books, including Love Poems for the Very Married and Company Manners. She has eight grandchildren.
