If your granny were a little bit, well, different from other grannies, would you want to change her, or would you love her just the way she is?
In this rhyming text, a little girl whose granny is (shhhh!) a witch just wants her gran to be like all the other grans, with a normal pet and nicely done hair. But when she realizes that her reformed granny is bored and boring, there’s nothing to do but cook up a big pot of gloppy soup with granny and all of her frogs, cats, and bats!
