Miss Eliza Flowerdew Can Nearly Touch the Ceiling
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.
