Granny Marmalade and Uncle Tractor

Granny Marmalade & Uncle Tractor is based on two real people – the author Julian Warrender (Granny Marmalade) and her son Jamie (Uncle Tractor). It was the arrival of her grandson Jasper, her eldest son Joseph’s first child that inspired her to write the book. As she says “Oh, it is glorious being a granny!”

This beautifully illustrated children’s book captures the magic of the changing year on a working farm and the reciprocal relationship between the land and cooking. It is an enchanting but realistic portrait, inspired by the author’s own experience of living on a farm, while also running a business making jams, curds, chutneys and jellies. Recipes for some of these are included in the book, and seasonal ideas for cooking with children punctuate the story. Suitable for children aged 4-8. The book features a downloadable song – a joyful rendition of the story – composed by Paul Austin Kelly.

A percentage of the profits from the sale of the book will go to Dandelion Time, a charity working with children struggling with emotional and behavioral difficulties.
