A story about family bonds, adventure and dealing with a loved one's dementia

'Mist-Bound' can be read by children, but Singapore-based Malaysian author Daryl Kho prefers to call his book a 'family novel', in much the same way Disney or Pixar movies are family movies. Photo: Daryl Kho

Often, it is real experiences that make the best stories. Just ask Daryl Kho, author of Mist-Bound: How To Glue Back Grandpa.

The Grandpa in this book is based on Kho’s father who passed away in 2018 after living with dementia for almost a decade. The girl in the book who embarks on a quest to find her Grandpa’s missing memory, is inspired by his daughter Alexis.
