Lucy’s mum is taller than her. Her grandad is even taller.
So Lucy longs to take a peek at the very elderly Miss Eliza Flowerdew – at her age (99) – she might even be able to touch the ceiling! But is Lucy brave enough to find out the truth?
This is a magical story that explores how we can make incorrect assumptions about people, particularly the elderly. Along with Lucy, children will discover the rich experiences that make up a long life, the importance of memories, and how the most unlikely friendships can be formed.
