A gorgeously illustrated and deeply endearing story about a young child and the special days she spends with her grandfather from the CBCA shortlisted illustrator of The Cat with the Coloured Tail.

Time with my seeya is quiet time. Mum says that’s because Seeya and I speak different languages. But that doesn’t matter to us, because my seeya and I like all the same things…

Whether they are playing dress-ups, going on adventures, making pittu, or reading to each other, any time shared between Sona and her seeya – her Sinhalese grandfather – is full of delight and bursting with love.

Dinalie Dabarera’s debut solo picture book is a heart-warming meditation on the immutable bond between grandparent and grandchild, brimming with sweet mischief and tender insight.
