In a true tale of a young girl in Iran and her grandmother, this beautiful ode to family celebrates small moments of love that become lifelong memories. In this big universe full of many moons, I have travelled and seen many wonders, but I have never loved anything or anyone the way I love my grandma. While Mina is growing up in Iran, the centre of her world is her grandmother. Whether visiting friends next door, going to the mosque for midnight prayers during Ramadan, or taking an imaginary trip around the planets, Mina and her grandma are never far apart... At once deeply personal and utterly universal, this story is a love letter of the rarest sort: the kind that shares a bit of its warmth with every reader.

"[...] deeply domestic, filled with exquisite textures...This apparently uneventful story is imbued with quiet richness; the careful delight of daily routines adding up to a lifetime's worth of love." * The Guardian * "The love that Mina has for her grandma will have you welling up in the final page ('I've never loved anything or anyone the way I loved my grandma') and feeling even more appreciative of the grandparents that you have, or have had, in your life." * BookTrust * "There is so much we as a family can relate to [...]" * Mamma Filz * "Warmhearted, exquisite and wise...what a joy!" * Fallen Star Stories * "A lovely story about life, love and the power of memory. Highly recommended." * The School Librarian *
