by Mina Javaherbin
illustrated by Lindsey Yankey


"In this universe full of many moons, I have travelled and seen many wonders, but I've never loved anything or anyone the way I loved my grandma". The author reflects on her life in Iran growing up with her Grandma. Full of shared intimacies, it's a wonderfully warm hug-of-a-life. Even when Mina is with best friend, Annette, her grandma is nearby, knitting blankets with Annette's, donating them to their respective mosque and church. Illustrations incorporating Persian designs, evoke a rich, contemporary Iranian setting, smoothly blending the traditional with the contemporary. 'Beautifully captures the heart of their special relationship. Thoughtful, touching and honest. The cultural references feel authentic. Lovely!' (Farrah, CLPE Learning Programme Leader, LL reviewer). 'Loving kindness is at the heart of this story which is told and illustrated with a delicate touch' (Eileen, Former Primary Teacher, LL reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 30pp
