Avantika Singh, better known as General Gosling, was born aboard a Boeing 747 somewhere over the Arabian Sea. Gosling and her siblingsDuckling and the twins Dingaling and Dumplinghave been brought up at Shadow House by their grandfather, the crazy, zany Nana and his lovely partner Shabby Aunty.
Nana, an ex-army surgeon, is completely whacko and life at Shadow House is exasperating, funny and unforgettable, what with Nanas fixation for his ten Classic and Vintage cars, Ducklings collections of virtually everything collectible and the twins notorious business swindles. But then when it becomes clear that Nana is slowly falling prey to dementia and Alzheimers, his daughter makes diabolical plans for himand for the childrens future. Plans that Gosling and the others are determined to thwart, without foreseeing how terribly things could go wrong for everyone. Will dear nutcase Nana survive all this and return to his beloved Shadow House and Shabby Aunty? At once funny and heart-breaking, Our Nana Was a Nutcase is a delightfully touching story about growing up, growing old and loving your grandparent no matter how nutty he may seem.
