Gracie and Josh

Gracie and Josh

by Susanne Gervay and Serena Geddes

Gracie is one of the beautiful characters of this world, as she sings Incy-Wincy dressed in her make-shift spider outfit with its stuffed sausage legs. She works busily finding spider stories for her brother Josh and gets angry at doctors who make Josh take off his beanie. She holds onto her mum as she asks when Josh will come home.

Her brother Josh is funny and strong and there for his sister Gracie. Josh is a movie maker and Gracie is a star. Together they make a film that celebrates their relationship and the wonderfulness of every day for everyone of us.
