The ACB with Honora Lee – picture

A touching, playful story about family, forgetfulness and friendship.

Every Saturday Perry and her father visit her gran, Honora Lee, at the Santa Lucia retirement home. Honora is sharp, outspoken and sull of surprises. Perry adores her, but Gran’s memory is failing.

As Perry compiles an ABC of life at Santat Lucia for a school project, it seems to her that Gran is losing words just as quickly as she is collecting them. Together the pair provide a unique lens on life, language and growing old.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, THE ACB is an uplifting, moving and poetic story which celebrates being different and will delight readers of all ages.
