Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and Friends Book Series

In 2017, Julie Coy created Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe storybooks after her son's artwork

and his true life story living with a disability.

Although born different, Grant has become an award-winning artist excelling above

and beyond what some could not imagine possible. But, early on, Julie knew Grant was MORE!

After the release of their first book in 2018, selling over 14,000 books, winning children's

book awards and being recognized by the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation, individuals,

 families, and friends asked Julie to write their story.

Today, Julie has turned her friend's stories into animated characters living with a special challenge

or situation. Through their friendship with GRANT the Jigsaw Giraffe and mentors, 

they come to understand that they are Different ... but MORE, too!
