Maisie and Dylan love Mrs Moon. She picks them up from school every day and they have great fun together. But then things start to get strange: a coat without sleeves, old socks as Christmas decorations, a missing dog, an imaginary folk band...

The children want to help, but what should they do for the best?

Love, loyalty and resilience shine through this powerful graphic story of two children determined to help their friend, Mrs Moon.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A book every pastoral lead needs to have in their collection, particularly at primary level."

* Books for Topics *

"A useful graphic novel about love and loyalty, and it may help the many children who find they know someone with dementia, or have to cope with a relative whose behaviour is puzzling."

* Books for Keeps *

"Helen Bate has created a thoughtful, empathetic graphic novel about the impact of dementia on its victims and those who love them...a beautiful, convincing story."

* Book Wagon *

"A rare and potentially significant book. Its importance lies in the way the concept of dementia confronts these children."

-- Dr Rebecca Butler * IBBY *

"Striking in its effectiveness. A touching and perceptive book that will help children understand the devastation caused to people's lives by dementia. Excellently handled and...very accessible."

* Parents in Touch *

"This is superb. One of the most impressive, important and sensitive children's stories about dementia that we've seen so far and one that made us both happy and sad in equal measure."

* Read it, Daddy! *

"A book about friendship, care, fears, heartfelt moments triumphs and solidarity with a plea to understand Dementia and the changes that come with it, to manage the same with more love and understanding."

* Armadillo *

"Helen [Bate] demonstrates her gift for presenting difficult topics in a sensitive way in order to deepen understanding and empathy. This is the perfect story for any chhild who has someone in their life experiencing dementia. Showing that whilst there are many challenges, when family and friends care, there is also hope."

* Reading Zone 4 star review *

"Love and devotion radiate from the pages of this intensely moving story (based on actual events); but it doesn't gloss over the enormous challenges those caring for someone with dementia are likely to face. Rather, it offers young readers an opportunity to better understand something of the condition and perhaps be better prepared should they encounter someone living with it.

This is a book that deserves to be in every school and should be read in all families. Particularly, as I was reminded by a charity worker from The Alzheimer's Society who stopped me as I left Waitrose recently that while I might not know anybody with Alzheimer's, over a quarter of the population knows someone who has this form of dementia alone."

* Red Reading Hub *

"Poignant, loving, informative, and consoling alike for children in similar situations."

* Kirkus *
