#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER

The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules is a quirky, humorous and heart-warming story about growing old disgracefully – and breaking all the rules along the way!

Seventy-nine-year-old Martha Andersson dreams of escaping the dull, drab life of the retirement home. With no intention of spending the rest of her days confined to an armchair, she enlists her four best friends—a.k.a. the League of Pensioners—to rebel against the rules imposed upon them. Together, they cause an uproar with their antics: protesting against early bedtimes, tasteless meals and a host of unfair cost-cutting measures. As the elderly friends become more daring, their activities escalate, and they devise a cunning plan to steal priceless paintings in order to fund their exciting new lives. Determined to stand up for senior citizens everywhere—and not to be slowed down by their walkers—they outrun both the law and the lawless on their way to wealth and infamy.

For fans of the 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, this is a charming, funny caper that proves you’re never too old to break the rules.

Editorial Reviews

"A funny, smart and heartwarming look at aging disgracefully." —Canadian Family"This lighthearted caper is funny and entertaining but also weaves in a more serious theme about the quality of life in today’s nursing homes. But mostly it’s a romp, following recent bestsellers The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, where 'old' people continue to live life to its over-the-top fullest."—Zoomer Magazine"It’s a good-natured, humorous crime caper in the Ealing comedy mould.” —The Independent (UK)“You'll rush through this deftly plotted novel brimming with amusing and inventive scenes. When closing the book, this phrase uttered by one of the characters will linger with you: Maybe it isn't so bad getting old after all.” —Le Parisien
