"This book is a hoot! This is one of the funniest, cutest, picture books I've read in a really long time. I loved it and had a great time! The illustrations are beautiful. I loved the style of artwork. The illustrations also helped to tell the story and gave it more humour. It's too adorable!
I loved seeing how this elderly woman wasn't held back by her age. She shows everyone that getting old doesn't mean your life is over and that it can't be exciting anymore. I love breaking the stereotype of weak, feeble senior citizens in this story. I also appreciated how the Grandmother gave back to the retirement home by teaching her peers karate and getting them active again. This is definitely a great message of never letting anything hold you back, not even age. Highly recommend—even to adults!!"
