When Edie's beloved Granny suffers a stroke, Edie feels as if she's lost her - but the Granny she loves is still there.
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.
"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."
