Lucky for Sophie and Chloe, Grandma Tillie knows how to royally entertain her grandchildren. To their delight, whenever Grandma Tillie babysits, she seems to disappear, only to be replaced by a parade of lovable characters. There's Tillie Vanilly with the bright pink hair, star of "The Tillie Vanilly Show," who loves to tell jokes and dance the conga; Chef Silly Tillie with the lampshade hat who offers up a dinner of Worm Chili with Glue Gravy; and Madame Frilly Tillie with the sparkly eyeglasses and towel turban, the world's most creative bath-bubble stylist. Sophie and Chloe wonder who will appear to tuck them into bed: Hiker Hilly Tillie, Explorer Chilly Tillie, or Zoo-lady Gorilly Tillie? To their surprise, it's the best character of all just plain Grandma Tillie.

Praise For Silly Frilly Grandma Tillie

"The whimsical illustrations of pencil on paper, digitally painted, finesse the exaggeration with colorful details. . . . The capricious tale will have young girls wishing for a silly grandma just like Tillie, especially if she can hang a spoon from her nose." —Kirkus Reviews (January 18, 2012)
