Summary
Spend the day with a grandma and granddaughter in this charming picture book about the magic found in their favorite accessory, a perfect gift this Mother's Day!

When Grandma Mimi comes to visit, she always brings warm hugs, sweet treats...and her purse. You never know what she'll have in there--fancy jewelry, tokens from around the world, or something special just for her granddaughter. It might look like a normal bag from the outside, but Mimi and her granddaughter know that it's pure magic!

In this adorable, energetic ode to visits from grandma, beloved picture book creator Vanessa Brantley Newton shows how an ordinary day can become extraordinary.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A small black girl excitedly awaits the arrival of her grandma Mimi, who brings her large, colorful purse, full of treasures and surprises. Warmth and love spread over the pages as the two enjoy their time together. The purse is not magical, but it seems that way to the girl as Mimi shares her lipstick, perfume, hairpins, sunglasses, earrings, scarf, candy, and phone. A beautifully decorated change purse prompts Mimi to recall the story of how the girl's grandfather brought it back from Japan, and a stack of family photos reminds them of other happy memories. The little girl wants to be just like Mimi, as she tries on and tries out each item. The best thing is found at the bottom of the amazing pocketbook. Removing the gaily wrapped package, the little girl discovers a smaller purse just for her, ready to hold all of her unique supplies. Gouache, charcoal pencil, and digital tools create an exuberant mélange of brightly colored, cheerful images, perfectly matched to the cheerful tone of the intergenerational story.--Whitehurst, Lucinda Copyright 2017 Booklist"
