The littlest fashionistas will love this adorable purse-shaped board book that’s as fun to carry as it is to read! Spend the day with a grandma and granddaughter in this charming picture book about the magic found in their favorite accessory. 

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.
