Maia and What Matters
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 heart-warming masterpiece of a picture book.
