Travels With My Granny

 
By Juliet Rix
Illustrated by Christopher Corr

A sensitive introduction to old-age confusion and dementia, through the loving and imaginative relationship between Granny and her grandchild – and their colourful journeys.

When my granny was younger she crossed rivers and mountain ranges, explored jungles and towering cities. Now her legs won’t carry her much further than the door. But she still travels – and sometimes she takes me with her…

Granny has travelled all over the world, to India, Egypt, China and Peru. And she still travels – in her mind and in her stories. The grown-ups say Granny doesn’t know where she is, but her grandchild can’t wait to go on another adventure. “Where are we going now, Granny?”

A sensitive introduction to old-age confusion and dementia, through the loving and imaginative relationship between Granny and her grandchild – and their colourful journeys.

REVIEWS

 

"Dementia is often difficult enough for adults to comprehend, but what about younger people? Journalist and author Juliet Rix has written an excellent new book to help explain what can be a confusing topic for children."

"On the surface a vibrant picture book about destinations throughout the world, told by an adventurous Grandmother, this is actually a book about dementia....An interesting, important addition."
