Bob and Nana take their grandson to Wonderworld where they tell him a surprise is waiting. The grandson adores and admires his Nana because she is a special person to be around. She is not afraid of anything. Heights, bugs and wild rides don’t frighten her. Unfortunately the big surprise comes in the form of Hortense, Bob’s granddaughter. What an ugly surprise! Hortense steals Nana’s attention all the time and even gets to share a hotel room with her. Boy is angry that he has to share the attention, until he discovers that Hortense misses spending time with her other grandparents since they divorced before she was born.

Here Comes Hortense is written by Heather Hartt-Sussman and illustrated very colorfully by Georgia Graham. Also Recommended for parents with children dealing with issues of jealousy and neglect.

For ages 4-7.
