All at once, it was as if the stars leapt closer.

Grandma grabbed the boy, raising him high above the rooftiles on her head.

She was alive!



The boy's grandma was a famous architect. Her garden is still full of old building materials. Unwilling to accept she has gone, the boy builds a giant structure from the bricks and girders he finds. And then ... Grandma comes to life! The boy is whisked away on an epic adventure across fields, through oceans and atop roofs. But where is Grandma taking him?
