A small boy helps one of the old folks next door remember when she loses her memory, in this gentle, beautiful story of sharing.More
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.

A Tender Story
The story has a great deal of charm.
Wilfred, of course, because he was too innocent to understand that he was undertaking the impossible.
I liked Mr. Drystale, "Who had a voice like a giant."
I'm a grown man, so I only cried a little. (When no one was looking.)
