"Claudia and the Sad Goodbye" was one of the best books I've read. Claudia's grandmother Mimi dies and Claudia is heartbroken.She doesn't know if she's ever going to get over it. I really enjoyed this book because it was sad,interesting and exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars sad book but good subject for helping kids deal with a loss 8 Aug 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
claudia and her grandmother mimi were so close. She would come from school everyday and together they would drink 'special tea' in beautiful japanese tea cups as displayed on the cover and mimi was the only one who understood claudia in her family. Mimi had a stroke recently but was doing fine for some time but her health begins to decline in this book and she's had to be rushed to the hospital a few times after collapsing and was sent home, but after being sent back a second time and saying she was doing fine she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Claudia experienced so many emotions that she couldn't grasp or understand throughout the events following the death. She felt sad, angry, abandoned and so forth and those feelings are real. Her family helped her out at the end though come to terms with it and it made me cry too cause my great grandmother passed away when I was a kid and I remember not knowing how to feel myself, happy cause she was in no more pain and in a better place, or sad cause i will never see her again and stuff like that.

this book was pretty sad but it told about mimi's death sensitively. The book had some pretty sad parts, but it also had some humorous parts. In a whole, CLAUDIA & THE SAD GOODBYE was a real tear jerker, espicaially if you are sensitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kid's Review 12 May 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"I hate Mimi! I hate her! Now that Mimi died, who's going to help me with my homework and have special tea with me?" Claudia has just suffered a sad good bye. Then someone else popped into Claudia Kishi's life. Carrie Addison. Carrie is a small, quiet 9 year old girl who makes Claudia realize that as terrible as she felt about Mimi, she realized Claudia knew her love. Claudia was lucky. Then Claudia relized it would be harder to be Carrie Addison.
I thought this book was great. I would read it 10 times over if I could. It was great becausse it has a few lessons for Claudia. I recommend this book for ages 8+.
3.0 out of 5 stars Nice ambiance, good handling of sad issue, though predictable 9 July 2014
By Swank Ivy - Published on
I always hated when the cover and title of these books told me exactly what was going to happen. "Sad Good-bye"? Picture of Claudia's beloved grandma on the cover? You do the math. But I was actually kinda glad that instead of acting like Mimi's death is a surprise that the kids reading won't expect, they end up making the family's grief part of the plot. Claudia's parents deliberately distract themselves with work and she's kinda like "Wait, how do I get through this?" Her sister, who's usually portrayed like she has no feelings because she's smart and nerds are just nerds, actually takes a lead role in bringing the family together. There's also some other Good Family Messages when Claudia and Mary Anne (who aren't usually "paired up" together for anything) end up working with kids for an arts and crafts class and one of the kids there is one of those "must have lessons all day every day" children. So they get to try to help that kid communicate with her parents about cultivating a relationship. Better do it while you can! Anyway, this is also one of the books where the mood of the book and the mindset of the character actually kind of affected the storytelling in the book, which was neat. You really got this out-of-joint feeling from it, which works.
