Maia and What Matters

Book Island

By Tine Mortier

Illustrated by Kaatja Vermeire

Maia is an impatient little scamp. When something pops into her head, she wants it. Now! Right this minute! Her grandma’s just the same and they get along like a house on fire. One day Grandma falls ill and loses her control over words. The grown-ups don’t seem to understand her, but Maia never loses sight of her strong, wonderful grandma and knows exactly what she means.

A beautiful and accessible book about the enduring relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter in the face of illness and aging.

Beautiful pictures from the illustrator of The Big Question.
