The Lines on Nana’s Face

By Simona Ciraolo
Illustrated by Simona Ciraolo

In this imaginative and charming story, Simona Ciraolo turns the lines from old age into little wrinkles of wonder and memory as a little girl learns all about the precious moments in her grandma’s life.

It’s granny’s birthday, but her little grandaughter wonders why, because of the lines on her face, she looks so worried! But they are simply wrinkles, and grandma is very fond of her lines because they are where she keeps her memories.

  • Simona is the bestselling author/artist of Hug Me and Whatever Happened to My Sister.
  • Her work won her the Sebastian Walker award in 2013.
  • Perfect for all ages.
