The ACB with Honora Lee by Kate De Goldi

I was madly in love with De Goldi’s The 10pm Question a few years ago, so expectations were high for the new book by this New Zealand author. This wonderful story only made me love her work even more.

Perry is very literal, a bit of an outsider, and referred to as ‘unconventional’ by her parents. She is delighted to learn that her grandmother, Honora Lee, who has recently moved to a nursing home near their house, is also considered ‘unconventional’. Although her grandmother suffers from Alzheimer’s and doesn’t remember Perry’s name, she still has plenty of attitude. Perry enjoys going to visit her and decides to embark on creating a unique alphabet book for her grandmother and the other nursing home residents.

Quirky and witty, this is a heartwarming story about intergenerational friendship and embracing difference. Stunning illustrations and cover flaps also make it a physically beautiful book that readers old or young (and in between) will treasure.
