Nani has gone. Forever. WHERE? asks Nina. Her mother grapples with answers but Nina won’t stop asking. Finally, she finds her own answers, through the warmth of memories, the comfort of imagination – and a little bit of natural science! The light touch and tone of the story along with the quietly reflective pictures treat the difficult subject of the loss of a loved one in a sensitive and refreshing way.

Sharply poignant

A very welcome change in children’s books in recent times is the emergence of themes like loss, death, separation, disability, and parental discord. Gone Grandmother is a story that talks about the loss of a dearly loved grandmother. A group of twelve-year-olds ‘reviewed’ the book for me and shared how much they related to it. They felt that whenever they have lost an older family member or a pet, everyone around looks sad but no one has the time to sit and talk with them about it. Using a good synergy between words and art, Chatura Rao and Krishna Bala Shenoi create a beautiful closure to this sensitively told story. Goodbooks.in
