Maia is an impatient little scamp. When something pops into her head, she wants it. Now! Right this minute! Her grandma’s just the same and they get along like a house on fire. One day Grandma falls ill and loses her control over words. The grown-ups don’t seem to understand her, but Maia never loses sight of her strong, wonderful grandma and knows exactly what she means.

A beautiful and accessible book about the enduring relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter in the face of illness and aging

 REVIEWS

A stunning and unusual book exploring friendship across the generations, illness and ageing. {Zoe Toft from Playing by the Book}

Possibly the most beautiful picture book of the year. {Ann Packer from The New Zealand Listener} 

Kaatje Vermeire is just one of the great illustrators currently working on the continent, who are strangely underappreciated by English-speaking audiences.  {Sophie Meehan of Tales for Tadpoles - Ireland} 

I can’t say enough good things about this production from the brave and non-sentimental story it tells to the amazing images covering each generous page which not only reflect what is happening but takes the reader beyond the story to explore more ideas. {Barbara Murison from Around the Bookshops}
