KIRKUS REVIEW

Like children everywhere, this inquisitive young Australian wonders about the odd things her grandmother has--a doll you can't play with (it covers the extra roll of toilet paper in the bathroom), a fragile china dog that sits by the hearth, plastic fruit that can't be eaten, garden gnomes. When she asks questions about these things, Nanna just smiles, or allows that they are ""For fun."" Still, Nanna is a happy person, and the two enjoy each other's company despite the differences symbolized by the objects the narrator describes. A nice exploration of one of childhood's minor mysteries, much enlivened by the humor in Wilcox's economical, skillfully drafted illustrations.
