Publishing Historical Family Stories Written and Illustrated by Young People

 

 

Using this index

This index includes all stories published by The Grannie Annie. To find stories on a particular topic, simply scroll down or search for the topic using “Find” (generally “Control + F” or “Command + F”).

 

Arrangement of stories in this index

Under each topic, stories from the most recent annual volume are listed first. Stories within a volume are listed in the order in which they appear in the books, and/or on The Grannie Annie’s website. All stories that The Grannie Annie has published in English appear on the website.

 

General guide to the information in this index

Each story title is followed by abbreviated information that indicates where you can find the story in one or more editions. Also, nearly every story has a link that will take you to the page on The Grannie Annie’s website where you can read that story. For Volumes 1–9 you may then want to use the website’s “Find” feature to take you directly to the story on that page. (Each story in Volumes 10 ­–13 is on a page by itself.)

 

The following examples explain the abbreviated information that follows each story title.

 

Stories in Volumes 1–10:5:28” means “Volume 5 paperback book, page 28.”

 

Stories in Volumes 6–9: “6:81, 6e:121, 6w:d2” means “Volume 6 paperback book, page 81; Volume 6 electronic edition, page 121; Volume 6 website story page ‘d,’ 2nd story on that webpage.”

 

Stories in Volumes 1113:Sandman 11:26” means “Volume 11 (all editions), story number 26.”

 

Stories in Echoes from World War II:  Clearing the Way 10:49; Echoes 105, eBook 38” means “Volume 10 paperback book, page 49; Echoes paperback book, page 105; Echoes eBook, story number 38.”
