JoJo & Gran Gran: 'My grandmother lives on in my stories'

Author Laura Henry grew up in London and had a close connection with her grandmother, who emigrated from St Lucia in the 1950s.

The role 'Mama' played in her life is the inspiration behind the characters in her children's books - on which the new CBeebies' series JoJo & Gran Gran is based.
