"Perry's mother and father are busy people ... they're impatient, they're tired, they get cross easily. And they think that only children, like Perry, should be kept busy. On Saturday mornings Perry and her father visit her gran, Honora Lee, at the Santa Lucia rest home, but Gran never remembers them. 'Who is that man?' Honora Lee asks when Perry's father leaves the room. After movement class is abruptly cancelled, Perry is allowed to go to Santa Lucia on Thursday afternoons. She discovers her Gran has an unconventional interest in the alphabet, so Perry decides to make an alphabet book with the help of Honora and the others. Soon everyone is interested in Perry's book project" --… (mer)

I won this in a Goodreads giveaway.

It is a super cute story. Just a nice innocent story. No drama or climax, just a story. It was a nice change of pace. I love the cute little drawings. Perry sounds like a kid I'd wanted to babysit, and I hate children.

It's sweet that Perry wanted to spend so much time with her grandmother, and she made friends with the other residents of the home. I want to see her completed book!

I really liked it, I think it's worth a chance. ( )

Perry is a precocious 9 year old who gets to know her grandmother who has Alzheimer's or some form of dementia in a nursing home and creates and creates an alphabet book. I found it a bit hard to believe that the grandmother would forget the order of the first three letters of the alphabet. ( )

The ACB with Honora Lee is a lovely book in many ways. It contains a heartwarming depiction of an over-organized only child taking just a bit of her life into her own hands and reaching out to befriend her senile yet feisty grandmother. Yet it strikes some odd notes. If they could change the NZ spelling, why on earth keep the peculiar title. Surely I am not the only person whose life is bedeviled by calculations of Adjusted Cost Base every year at tax time, necessitating multiple files named ACBx, y, or z which I see at the top of my documents every time I open the word processing program. That's a quibble, admittedly, but the whole thing about the "ACB" is disturbing. Supposedly Grandma Honora Lee doesn't remember the order of the first three letters of the alphabet, which is certainly possible but for a letter-obsessed English teacher not the most likely thing to lose: yet if it were true, it seems uncharacteristically mean-spirited for Perry to make a big deal of pointing out her grandmother's handicap to all and sundry. Then, the book is largely devoted to describing a series of pictures drawn by Perry, the young granddaughter. But we never see the pictures! The book is illustrated, but in more of a New Yorker style of artsy line drawings which refer obliquely to Perry's artwork but are clearly nothing at all like it. I found that peculiarly unsatisfying, and I'm sure that the children I usually read stories to would find it frustrating beyond belief, since they always demand to see literal pictures of what the text describes. The final disturbing element was the dead bee theme. It did not seem to relate to the rest of the book.

What I did like about the book was the depiction of the elderly residents of Honora Lee's nursing home. They were very natural and delightful, seen matter-of-factly through Perry's eyes. Without the alphabet book theme (and by the way, I reread the book to try to pinpoint when it became what it is at the end of the story, a school project rather than a personal effort of Perry's, but couldn't find a reference) it would have been a completely enjoyable narrative.

What a lovely book! Perry is the only child of very, very busy parents. When one of her scheduled after school programmes falls through they are left scrambling on how to fill Perry's Thursday afternoon. Perry asks to be allowed to visit her grandmother who lives in an assisted care facility and suffers from dementia. In order to connect with her Gran (who never remembers her - and thinks she is a boy) Perry decides to make an alphabet book to help her remember their visits.

This is a lovely, beautifully illustrated story about relationships and acceptance. ( )

A wonderful story of difference and relationships - full of life, hope and humor. Well written and opens up a warm, perceptive, touching view of the wisdom of children. A fabulous read! I received this book as part of the Early Reviewers program. ( )
