Review:

Clearly written and well illustrated, this entertaining story gives a good sense of what living with dementia can be like. It is a welcome introduction to anyone (including children aged 13 and upwards) wanting to understand more about living with dementia. --Living with Dementia, The magazine of Alzheimer's Society

[...] a fresh approach to understanding dementia. In 48 pages, it provides an excellent insight into what it is like to live with dementia... The first-person perspective is a useful device for making information personal and particular... A few informative pages at the end of the book give an overview of the types of dementia, facts and figures, dementia-friendly environments and a brief list of resources for those affected by dementia. --Nursing Standard

While this book is relevant for all family members, it will certainly be of significance to children who are living with or who are close to someone with dementia. It is written in a style as understandable for children as for adults, and the information is detailed and compassionate. --Healthy Books
