Written and illustrated by a new talent in children's picture books, this extraordinary book deals with the loss of a parent from a child's point of view.
Perfectly pitched text and evocative artwork explore the many emotions a bereaved child may experience, from anger to guilt and from sadness to bewilderment. And importantly, the book also focuses on the positive -- the recognition that the child is still part of a family, and that his memories of his mother are to be treasured.
Beautifully illustrated with moments of wonderful warmth and the gentlest humour, this is a touching, honest and helpful book that approaches a difficult subject with great integrity.
