Where’s Grandma? by Edmund Lim (Hardback) Winner of Hedwig Anuar Children's Book Award 2013
Selected for the National Library Board's READ! Singapore 2012
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.

“An unexpected hit with my sons...the boys loved the simple yet evocative prose and Tan Zi Xi's childlike illustrations. They totally related to the grandson in the story...While not sugar-coating how the illness affects families, the book remains upbeat and hopeful.”
