After several strange incidents the grandchild discovers that their grandma has been captured by and is being impersonated by her evil twin sister.

Amy, can we eliminate When the Sea Turned to Silver by John Pennington?

Around what year did you read (or first see) this book? This will help narrow down the search?

Probably around 2002.
It wasn't part of a series.
I don't remember anything about the cover but it was a comedic style children's book.
The book takes place in modern times.
Thank you for helping!

It isn't When the Sea Turned to Silver, the book was comedic with a similar tone to There's a Viking in my Bed, etc. I probably read it in around 2002 so the target age for the book is probably around 7-8. Thanks for your help!
