Description:
Moving, charming novel from much-loved, international-award-winning children's author Kate de Goldi, author of the 10pm question. Beautifully packaged and illustrated throughout with drawings by Greg O'Brien. Perry's mother and father are busy people a they're impatient, they're tired, they get cross easily. And they think that only children, like Perry, should be kept busy. On Saturday mornings Perry and her father visit her gran, Honora Lee, at the Santa Lucia rest home, but Gran never remembers them. 'Who is that man?' Honora Lee asks when Perry's father leaves the room. After movement class is abruptly cancelled, Perry is allowed to go to Santa Lucia on Thursday afternoons. She discovers her Gran has an unconventional interest in the alphabet, so Perry decides to make an alphabet book with the help of Honora and the others. Soon everyone is interested in Perry's book project. Kate De Goldi's The ACB with Honora Lee unfolds with characteristic warmth, quirky, surprising humour and a rich cast of 'residents'. The story is a meditation on kindness and patience and acceptance; that of the very young and the very old.
It's a story that will resonate with echoes of recollection for many - from Perry's endearing perspective on the adult world to the embracing kindness of those who care for the elderly. A many-layered and playful novel with a crossover audience, it will delight both the young and the not so young.
