About the Author
Emma Straub is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels The Vacationers and This Time Tomorrow, among others, and the picture book Very Good Hats. She and her husband own Books Are Magic, two independent bookstores in Brooklyn, New York.

Susan Straub knows the power of picture books. Her Read to Me Program, focused on getting books into the lives of young families, provided insights and material for a co-authored Reading with Babies, Toddlers & Twos. Susan lives in Brooklyn, wonderfully near her novelist daughter Emma Straub and her two grandchildren.

Jessica Love is an award-winning author and illustrator. Her critically acclaimed debut picture book, Julián Is a Mermaid, has received several prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Stonewall Book Award, as well as numerous starred reviews. She lives in New York.
"As the Straubs highlight with panache the importance--and pleasure--of breaking the rules, Love captures Gaga's Auntie Mame-style dash, spontaneity, and sartorial splendor, and the air of conspiratorial delight that she and her grandchild share. " --Publishers Weekly

"This is a gently comical tribute to warm, deeply loving grandmother-grandchild relationships. The dynamic pencil, watercolor, and gouache illustrations are as free-wheeling and entertaining as gray-haired Gaga, who is pale-skinned; the protagonists and the parents are brown-skinned. " --Kirkus

"Pencil, watercolor, and gouache in Love's recognizable style add an extra dose of magic to the pair's fanciful days. With bright bursts of color and extravagant scenes, the reader is whisked away into their playful world from the very first page. " --The Horn Book Magazine

"Award-winning illustrator Jessica Love uses vivid sweeps of color and expressive linework in dynamic compositions, adding cleverly observed details, to bring this sprightly character and her quirky antics to something decidedly larger-than-life. Young readers will revel in the carefree silliness of these shared "mistake days." --Booklist

"Scene after scene in gouache, watercolors, and pencil illustrate intergenerational love and delight with dynamic sweeps, wry humor, and vibrant patterns. This homage to the eccentricities and charm of special grandparents ticks a lot of boxes. Highly recommended." --School Library Journal
