Written by Edmund Lim
Illustrated by Tan Zi Xi
Luke is a little different from other boys his age. His best friend is his Grandma. They would do everything together—walking to school, strolling in the park, and playing in the playground. That was before Grandma’s fall. Everything changed after that. She lost her way in the neighbourhood she has lived in for over twenty years. She even forgot Luke’s name. Edmund Lim tells a poignant story of how one boy copes with losing his beloved Grandma to Alzheimer’s disease only to discover something more powerful. Tan Zi Xi’s sensitive illustrations capture the pathos brilliantly.
Woods in the Books Recommendation:
A tricky subject to broach with children, this book sensitively deals with and helps to raise questions about Alzheimer’s that parents can use to start a conversation with kids.
