In 2019, Guvna B and Emma Borquaye had their first child, Ezra. As they began to navigate the word of parenthood, they soon realised the challenge of having to explain the concept of loss to their young son. After the award-winning rapper Guvna B lost his dad unexpectedly in 2017, Guvna B wanted Ezra to know about his grandad, even though he was no longer with them.
Where Grandad Lives answers the call to help parents and children discuss grief and loss together. Featuring characters based on Ezra and his friends, Ezra shares that his Grandad lives somewhere really special. When his friend Zadie is unsure she knows where – and when all her ideas of special homes are exhausted – she has to ask Ezra to show her… And Ezra shares what it’s like when someone you love lives in your heart: the good, the bad and the hard to explain.
Where Grandad Lives is a powerful and important book about losing someone you love.
