Praise for Anna and Otis - The Sunday Times
The grown-ups are having a party, and Meena would really love to join in but instead she's sent to bed. Only grown-ups get to stay up late. So the next day she makes a very important announcement to her parents: "I'm actually really grown-up now!"
In this very funny story we join Meena as she plans her very own grown-up party and explores what it REALLY means to be a grown up. She has a lot of fun experimenting with fashion, going to work and party planning, but she soon finds out that being grown-up might not always be as easy as it seems.
I'm Actually Really Grown-Up Now by Maisie Shearring is the follow-up to the wonderful Anna and Otis. Maisie has a special talent for capturing the bittersweet highs and lows of childhood and the humour to be found in everyday situations.

Parents of children who have desperately wanted to stay up and be part of a grown-up party will recognise Meena's fear of missing out, and Shearring's book is a great way to remind children that sometimes, adults need to have fun with their friends just like kids need to enjoy being kids (and, maybe, adult parties might even be a bit boring). Shearring's illustration is always full of verve and fun (mum and dad's expressions when being woken up after the party are brilliant) and her depiction of a modern family is lovely * BookTrust *
beautifully illustrated and written * Express *
