     Can Granny do it?… Can She win the game? … While wearing fuzzy yellow slippers?
     Little Granny Whiteoaks in her younger years had a football career that earned her trophies and newspaper recognition. Till a fumble cost her the game. Years later while watching a football game on TV, Granny’s ears perk as she hears “Balls on the forty, still enough time. We need Granny! The games on the line.”
     Will she… Can she… “Aches and pains say No! No! No!” “Should she quit? Give up her dream? Is she too old for the football team?” With some tricky acrobatic moves Granny is up and out of bed, through the TV, through the camera, and on the field. With her cane in hand, fuzzy yellow slippers, and sweat pants, Granny is ready. "Off she trots to the football game.” The fans cheer! With a jump, a leap, and a twist she is running down the field. Oh NO! a “Stumble!” a “Fumble! Whose ball will it be?” Granny gets the ball. “Clap! Crunch! Churn! Turn!”. The game is full of action. Granny so small, up against these monster players. After a few crunches, crashes, and bangs “Granny sees stars.” As one player falls, Granny is thrown into the air. “Touchdown. Touchdown, Sis! Boom! Bah! Little Granny Quarterback, Rah! Rah! Rah!” Way to go Granny.
     This action packed story is sure to get your preschooler cheering, GO GRANNY! Bill Martin Jr. And Michael Sampson did a fabulous job on this story. The story is easy to follow, keeps moving, and will grab the attention of your preschooler.
     The story is complemented by Michael Chesworths adorable and hilarious illustrations. They illustrations are full of color and action. They are done in bright watercolors and pencil. From the huge mean football player to sweet little Granny quarterback, the illustrations come to life. You can almost fell the crunches, bumps, and bangs depicted in the illustrations.
     I recommend this book for all young children (preschool 3-5) and all those young at heart.
