Spend the day with a grandma and granddaughter in this charming picture book about the magic found in their favorite accessory, a perfect gift this Mother’s Day!

When Grandma Mimi comes to visit, she always brings warm hugs, sweet treats…and her purse. You never know what she’ll have in there—fancy jewelry, tokens from around the world, or something special just for her granddaughter. It might look like a normal bag from the outside, but Mimi and her granddaughter know that it’s pure magic!

In this adorable, energetic ode to visits from grandma, beloved picture book creator Vanessa Brantley Newton shows how an ordinary day can become extraordinary.

Perfect for readers of other fun grandparent books like How to Babysit a Grandma/Grandpa and Nana in the City.

A picture book powerhouse with more on the way: Vaness Brantley-Newton’s signature energetic art has grown her status in the children’s book community over the past few years, and her star will continue to rise.

Warm, intergenerational storyline: the story showcases a touching child-grandparent bond.

Gorgeous artwork in Vanessa’s signature style incorporating fabric, handwritten letters, and other found objects give it a timeless quality with a youthful energy.

A diverse family based on Vanessa’s own: Vanessa is commited to creating books for children of color that is not tied to the tragedies of the past that so often define certain communities. This story features two African-American protagonists, but speaks to families of any color.

A marketable author: Vanessa is just as captivating and energetic in person as she is on the page and is perfect for bookstore visits, conferences, book fairs, and other events.

Mother’s day appeal: pubbing in time for the holiday, this will be an annual go-to gift for spunky grandmas everywhere.

Vanessa Brantley-Newton is a self-taught illustrator, doll maker, and crafter who studied fashion illustration at FIT and children’s book illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She is the author and illustrator of Let Freedom Sing and Don’t Let Auntie Mabel Bless the Table and has illustrated numerous children’s books including Sewing Stories by Barbara Herkert, Mary Had A Little Glam by Tammi Sauer, One Love and Every Little Thing, words by Bob & Cedella Marley, and Presenting Tallulah by Tori Spelling.

"Brantley-Newton's vividly colorful images paint the happiness the little girl feels in her grandmother's presence. A strong intergenerational choice for any picture book collection."—SLJ
