Just Like Grandpa Jazz

Tarah Gear, illus by Mirna Imamovic

Owlet Press

A suitcase of stories from Grandpa Jazz connects Frank to his rich Mauritian heritage and is also the start of an epic adventure!

“I wrote this book to show how storytelling is a critical process in breaking down the construct of race, but also to depict the loving and fun relationship between a kid and his grandpa – two people who are captivated, enthralled, fun-loving, fiery, silly, eccentric and in a world of their own, but who the world treats differently because of a superficial difference.”

Selling Points:

  • Showcases Mauritian culture.
  • Written from personal experience of privilege and racism experienced within one dual-heritage family.
  • Educates about Windrush. immigration and mixed race family make-ups.
  • Includes back matter about heritage and elements of anti-racism.
