      The characters are very well portrayed and the fabulous pictures could stand all on their own.

    7. Publishers Weekly (US)

      A search for a boy’s grandmother in a large metropolitan hospital provides a startlingly honest look at the lives of sick people … It’s not the usual child enters- hospital comfort book; it’s more a child’s-eye view of the mystery of ill health itself.

      The pictures tell the story in this beautifully, distinctively designed book.

      For any child wanting to know or learn about hospitals, Where’s Grandma shows them all facets of these often scary (to children) places. Henry meets those who are ill, doctors, a surgeon, security and maintenance men, all told in the natural process of him looking for his Grandma. With longer text than usual for a picture book, small children might fidget, although the pictures are clear and telling a story themselves. Loved it
