Editorial Reviews

Mem Fox's animated, dynamic performance of her own classic Australian children's book bristles with energy as she tells the story of Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, a young volunteer at a retirement home who forms an unlikely bond with the 96-year-old Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper and accidentally helps her discover memories she'd seemingly lost forever.

Fox's touching, heartfelt tale is a testament the power of memory and the importance of respecting one's elders, and it is as timeless as it is enchanting.

Publisher's Summary

In this gentle, moving story about caring and sharing, a small boy helps an old friend remember when her memory is not as sharp as it used to be.
