HAVING four names would be tough for anyone to remember, let alone a boy who doesn't know what a memory is.
But Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is on the hunt to track down the definition after learning his new friend Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, a resident at the aged care facility next door to his house, has lost hers. Follow Wilfrid's journey with today's book, the sixth instalment of our Great Australian Storybook Collection where we're giving away 15 of the best Australian children's books for just $2.30 with the paper.
Grab the token inside today's paper and take it to any participating newsagency, Woolworths and IGA to take home this Mem Fox classic.
Keep collecting every day up until next Sunday.
