Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is a short but sweet picture book written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Julie Vivas. It was originally published in 1984 by Omnibus Books, an Australian publishing company. The copy I own was published in 1985 by Kane/Miller Book Publishers here in the U.S.A. I highly recommend this book. It’s about a small boy who lives next door to an “old people’s home”. When he finds out that his favorite person living there has lost her memory, he tries to help her find it. So Wilfrid Gordon went home again to look for memories for Miss Nancy because she had lost her own. This is a terrific, feel-good kind of story about a little boy’s relationship with an elderly neighbor. The illustrations are colorful yet warm and subdued, a nice complement to the text.
