Description - Finding Granny by Kate Simpson

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.

Author Biography - Kate Simpson

Kate Simpson spent her childhood with her nose in a book but always thought writing was something that other people did - people with 'ideas'. In her thirties, Kate finally decided to give it a try and discovered that ideas can come from anywhere and writing can be for anyone. When she's not writing or reading, Kate loves board games and laughter, the feel of the sun on her face, and spending time with family, particularly her two young children. This is her first picture book. Gwynneth Jones drew all through her maths book at school, so left to study art at TAFE and then majored in Plant and Wildlife Illustration at the University of Newcastle. Since then, Gwynneth has been imagining, drawing, exhibiting and holding market stalls. Gwynneth is also studying to be an art therapist.
