My daughter and I enjoyed this book and it is a nice way to approach the subject of what happens after we die. The only thing I didn't like was the reference to where you go if you haven't behaved yourself during your life. This isn't something I'm interested in teaching my daughter but it only takes up a couple of pages and if you don't mind that approach then its a great book.

A great book to share with Primary-aged pupils. I used it in a 'Philosophy for children' session and it promoted an interesting discussion time.

Funny and moving. Whilst there is no better way to bring up the subject of death with children this book is so much more than a difficult conversation starter. It's a brilliant picture book that you'll love reading to your kids and they will love hearing. Even if it will make adults weep at the end.

I chose this book for my 7 year old granddaughter who lost her beloved pet dog when she was 4. Under 5's do not have the ability to understand the permanence of death and aged 6 she began to grieve for Brandy even though she loved Brandy's successor. Heaven is well illustrated but I felt the page about 'down there' with a fire and pitchfork was inappropriate and could complicate her healing process so I covered it over with a blank sheet where she can draw Brandy or herself in the book. I am not sure it clarifies to under 5's that their pet has gone forever as Dill only says ''he will be away a long time'', parents would need to explain as we discovered that they wont 'come back' from Heaven. Having said all this the book is a valuable tool in helping children to talk about their feelings regarding the loss of a much loved pet or when anticipating pet loss.

We lost a beloved cat and a greatgrandmother very close together; this book was a great find to explain things in a caring way to my then 3yr old. Any mention of heaven is going, of course, to need a reference to 'the other place', but the whole subject is dealt with in a pragmatic, humorous and sensitive way with wonderful illustrations. Now age 5 my daughter still requests it as a bedtime story and likes to discuss how those we knew will be getting on in heaven! A perfect book to help you explain things to little people in difficult times of loss; it has given my daughter the language to articulate her feelings.

Would be suitable for any child who had lost a pet and was trying to come to terms with it. Lovely illustrations and written in a humorous way.

As described......introduction to death of someone close to young children. It is an easy to follow story with lovely simple illustrations.

I purchased this book purposely as our dog was almost 16 years old and I knew the "time" was approaching. My 4 year old daughter and I read this for several nights prior to our dog passing away. When the awful time came, she simply stated "has she gone to a cloud with wings then?" which is where Dill the dog is last shown. It made things much easier for me to explain and much easier for her to accept. My only real negative was that Lily soon found a replacement puppy and that has led to the inevitable "can we get a rabbit now?" kids eh?!
