An unlikely friendship takes centre stage in this gentle portrayal of dementia from award-winning author Jonathan Meres.
All Frank wants is a new bike, but bikes cost money … So he better start saving! When he decides to help his sister, Lottie, with her paper round, the last thing Frank expects is to meet an old lady wearing a cowboy hat and boots – she’s not like anyone he’s ever met before. But Frank’s new friend seems a bit muddled, and when she needs help, he’s the only one there to lend a hand.
