Every two seconds, someone in the world suffers a stroke. In Finding Granny, that someone is Edie's beloved grandmother. When Edie comes to the hospital, she is confronted by the physical changes in her grandmother: muddled words, a crooked face, a woman confined to bed. This isn't the `playtime, bedtime, story-time pantomime Granny' that Edie knows. "That's not my Granny," she says, as she waits outside in the corridor during her mother's visits. But when her mother takes Edie to watch one of Granny's art therapy sessions, Edie starts to understand that the Granny she loves is still there. Finding Granny is a heart-warming story of changing relationships and the bond between children and grandparents. It's also a sensitive exploration of coping with illness and disability that will offer children much-needed comfort.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Granny is a heart-warming story about the love shared by children and grandparents, and the way relationships can change with illness and age. It's also a sensitive and emotionally honest account that will offer support and comfort to children (and families) struggling with the effects of illness on their own lives." * Reading Time *
"This touching story alongside the colourful illustrations would be a great book to have in your children's library for discussions on illness, disability and even getting old!" * Swings + Roundabouts Magazine *
"Edie's Granny is perfect - she's warm, loving and all things fun. But when she has a stroke, suddenly the Granny Edie knows isn't there anymore. Or is she? A heart-warming story of love, hope and coping with life's challenges." * The Bottom Shelf *
"Finding Granny is a heartening tale of the bond between children and grandparents, and how this relationship continues to change and flourish. It broaches a difficult subject that can be hard for children to understand with care and sensitivity, and shows that no matter what happens a little love can help you through life's challenges. " * The Daily Telegraph *
"A good book to read with young children which explains in a gentle manner how to deal when things that go wrong with loved ones." * School Days Magazine *
"The moment the glorious end pages of this book, melting with blended colour, greet you, you know you are part of something special ... a judiciously presented picture book that broaches the subjects of illness and disability in an open, sensitive and creative way that 4 - 8-year-olds will find appealing and easy to accept." * Boomerang Books *
