Happily sloppy artwork and perfectly picked words and pace present the first-person ponderings of a young girl as her once spunky grandmother slips into forgetfulness in this sweet, sad tale of coping and compassion.

Update: Mark mentions the documentary film and supporting website, Forgetful not Forgotten.
