When Grandpa starts forgetting things …

Mia loves her Grandpa more than anyone else in the world! They do really fun things together and have races on the way home from school. But lately, Grandpa has been acting strangely and can’t seem to remember the simplest things: where he left his shoes, why the electric kettle has a plug, what day it is, how to put on a vest – or even who Mia is. But Mia learns how to deal with Grandpa’s illness and finds her own special way of helping him cope with the anxieties of everyday life …
