Fern’s Nanna has not been herself of late. And when Mom remarks that all the joy seems to have gone out of her life, Fern decides to fetch the joy back. With her catching-kit at the ready, she goes to the park and finds joy in all sorts of unusual places. Whooooshh!
But Fern soon realises that joy doesn’t fit in a bag, or a box, or a can! How will she manage to bring some back to Nanna? Emotional, funny, and uplifting, this beautiful picture book has a strong message about empathy and maintaining loving relationships with our grandparents. Guaranteed to bring a bit of joy into every reader’s life, this story is a pure delight.

Fern realizes that something is going on with her Nanna and plans on remedying it. Great book to help with emotions and noticing differences in others. The illustrations are engaging and interesting for me. I liked the use of the illustrations to convey the emotions going on with the little girl. This is a definite recommendation from me.
