Book 4 in the ‘Whatever Next, Grandma!’ series
ideal for ages 5-8 years
When Grandma goes riding for the first time things quickly go very wrong. Her pony, Jitterbug, loves mischief, and just knows when it’s time to have some fun.
Shouldn’t Grandma have told the truth about being a beginner? And why doesn’t she do what Molly, the riding instructor tells her?
Hang on to your riding hats for a thrilling horsey adventure, perfect for pony lovers big and small.
Has Grandma finally learnt her lesson this time? Gertrude has her doubts.
These brightly coloured books are great as birthday gifts or at any time of year, and will build into a colourful and entertaining series that children will love dipping into.
I like the way Gertrude hides from Grandma under the cupboard. The pictures are brilliant.
What a lovely, charming book ! The story was engaging and funny, and the jokes kept my attention right to the end. Waiting for the next installment …
Though simple in form and language this tale addresses some big questions, such as whether it is advisable to lie to get what you want! Alison’s use of easily accessible vocabulary, alongside more challenging words, makes this series an ideal choice for both emergent readers and for readers able to enjoy the books unaided.

I laughed a lot when Grandma lost control of the pony. I loved the jokes and the pictures. I’m looking forward to reading the next story…Gertrude’s always so terrified of Grandma’s adventures!
