Audible Editor Reviews

A touching if bittersweet parable about the nature of memory and the relationship between young and old. Little Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge lives near an old people's home and knows everyone there, so when one of the residents loses her memory, he sets out to find it for her. The plan works better than you might imagine. Author and performer Mem Fox's voice is gentle and sweet, and sensitive music filters in and out of the recording. App users will no doubt enjoy watching the lovely watercolor illustrations flit past.

    "Marvelous Mem"

    I love the story of little Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge. I use this story every year as I lead my fourth grade writers to look inside for topics...things they remember, that are warm, that make them cry and laugh, things from long ago, and things that are as precious as gold to them. It works, just like the boy's basket worked for Ms. Nancy! Awesome story, awesome recording!
