Our customer reviews

This story follows Wilfred's quest to help his special friend Miss Nancy who is living with Alzheimers. Wilfred and Miss Nancy have a special bond already (as they both have four names) but Wilfred's gift to her brings them even closer. With delightful and quirky illustrations, this book sensitively deals with a thorny issue that many children face in their own lives. Keep the tissues handy - it's also a tear jerker!show more
