Amazon Description

A small boy tries to discover the meaning of "memory" so he can restore that of an elderly friend

One Potato Review

Do old people scare you? Then here are some of the most welcome - and welcoming - senior citizens in children’s literature. Mrs. Jordan plays the organ, Mr. Tippett is crazy about cricket, and the many-named boy across the fence from their retirement home simply cannot get enough of them, in particular Miss Nancy Allison Delacourt to whom he tells all his secrets, and who is meanwhile losing her memory. What the heck is a memory though? That depends, still nobody is suffering anyone here, and the exchanges are all mutually rewarding. Sunny and honest. An essential antidote.
