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