In this very special story, Wilfrid Gordon helps his 96-year-old friend, Miss Nancy, regain some of her memories.
Author Mem Fox wrote Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge in the hope of bringing children and the elderly together and it remains a modern-day classic, used in homes, classrooms and even training sessions for volunteers who work with the elderly.
Praise for Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge…
"For a topic often spoken of in euphemism, the author has displayed warmth, wit and dignity without being sappy. The spongeable cover and dreamy watercolors complement this uplifting tale."
The Los Angeles Times
"A wonderful tale that celebrates both the exuberance of childhood and the dignity of old age."
The Boston Sunday Globe
"The illustrations splashy, slightly hazy watercolors in rosy pastels contrast the boy's fidgety energy with his friends' slow, careful movements and capture the story's warmth and sentiment."
