"Detective Luka opened the notebook and began to write. He was on the case."

The story follows a young boy, Luka, and his grandmother, who often get into trouble because of their forgetfulness. The story ingeniously traverses the subtle parallels and wide discrepancies that children draw between their own everyday forgetfulness and that of someone they love, who possibly has a new dementia diagnosis. 

Four out of five New Zealanders know or have known someone living with dementia¹, and supporting people, especially young people, on how to live well with a dementia diagnosis in the family is much needed.
