The cartoonist Tony Husband has documented his father's decline into dementia comic-strip style. It is warm, candid and, of course, sad.
The Mail describes it as a picture book unlike any other. It isn't - Raymond Briggs and Matthew Johnstone have been down similar roads before - but that's a niggle (as is my objection to the word ANY being capped up in the standfirst).
It is still a special piece of work and it is brilliant that a paper has the confidence to devote three pages to it. It's not news. It's not a feature. But dementia touches so many families that there can be no doubt of its relevance to readers. For Husband and the Mail to make it available for 60p is admirable. And, of course, it's free to read on the website (it has been shared 23,500 times). For once the Mail has used an adverb appropriately when it says "We proudly print it in full".
