Beschreibung

Steinhöfel tenderly captures a child's fear and understanding of a loved one with dementia. Shortly after his ninth birthday, Max woke with a feeling that was endlessly deep and glowing that something was missing. Taking action, he walks across town to the nursing home where his grandfather has recently moved. Max sneaks his grandfather out of the nursing home and they go to the nearby meadow, a magical place where Max and his grandfather have spent many summer days and where Max felt watched over, protected and comforted for as long as he can remember. They talk about the moon and how you can sometimes see it during the day, but not always. Later Max expresses his greatest fear to his grandfather, That someday I'll ask, do you remember? And you won't remember anymore. And that someday...someday you will forget how much you love me. Max's grandfather assuages Max's fear with You can't always see the moon, but you know it's always there. Right? Steinhöfel's lush, evocative language, tingly with a sense of place and emotion, is accompanied by Palmtag's colored pencil illustrations that prove a perfect match with their whimsy and tenderness. VERDICT With its loving portrayal of aging, caring for the elderly, and the keen nature of kids' sensibilities, this is a must-purchase for all libraries serving children. School Library Journal, Starred Review

Did you hear the story about Max, the boy who kidnapped his grandfather from a nursing home? You didn't see it on the news? Well, let me tell you about it.

Max lives in a small town, much smaller than yours. His grandpa is losing his memory, but still remembers quite a bit. You can imagine how they hurried, Max and his grandpa, followed by old Miss Schneider, who insisted on coming along. Why were they in a hurry? Because everyone was after them. Max had skipped school to rescue his grandpa, and they were just starting out on what promised to be one of the best days of their entire lives.

A touching story about dementia and the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, with full-color illustrations and a read-along CD audiobook featuring twelve classical pieces for children by Georges Bizet and Sergei Prokofiev.
