Description of this Book

"Michael uses his friend's metal detector to check out his garden - hoping to find something exciting. He doesn't find any treasure, but does find a strange-looking metal banana-shaped object with a couple of buttons on it. Playing with it as though it were a gun, he points it at his Grandma coming in through the gate, and presses one of the buttons, a stream of yellow light engulfs her and she metamorphoses into a giant lizard! Panicking, he locks her in the garden shed. When Mum goes to investigate noises coming from the shed, Grandma is in there - but is it really Grandma?"--Publisher information.

Author's Bio

Suzanne Main spent the first twenty years of her career working as an accountant in her hometown of Wellington and overseas. In 2011, she took up creative writing with the New Zealand Writers College, followed by a weekend novel-writing workshop where the idea for her first book was hatched. How I Alienated My Grandma was the winner of the 2014 Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon Award. Fraser Williamson grew up on the North Shore of Auckland, and describes his childhood as dominated by the beach, surfing, and the sea. He studied graphic design at AUT before commencing a career illustrating books and painting. He now spends his time between New Zealand, Spain and Tonga, making a living from his creative work with wife Loisi.
