Illustrated by Kevin Burgemeestre.
Cadbury's grandmother's a truckie. She drives a semi-trailer called Tootsie, a 36-tonne Kenworth with bogie drive wheels and power steering. Cadbury nearly died of shame when she first went on the road, especially when his friends found out. Real grannies are supposed to spend their time quietly in rocking chairs, aren't they?
But it isn't very long at all before Cadbury discovers that having a grandma who drives a semi-trailer isn't all bad. In fact, having a granny like Cadbury's could be the best thing that ever happened to a kid!
