The Day Granny Broke the Internet
Tiffany, Max and Luisa are enjoying their holidays at home when Granny breaks the Internet – only by accident, she emphasises. Suddenly, everything changes: no more music for Luisa, no more messaging for Max, no more animal documentaries for Grandpa and no more work for Mum and Dad. This book is a hilarious reflection on family life and our dependence on the Internet.
The Day Granny Broke the Internet casts a glance at modern life from the perspectives of different generations. Little Tiffany, for example, does not know what the Internet is, so her Granny compares it to Teletext; Max thinks that Granny doesn’t have a clue and likens it to a pinboard where you can post messages, photos and stories. At the end of the day, however, an IT specialist comes to fix the family’s connection, and everything goes back to normal – only Tiffany is a bit sad and tries to convince Granny to do it again...
‘Great fun for children aged eight and above – and grown-ups… light-footed and funny…a perfect book – not just for when the internet is down!’
