Product Description

Review

The carefully worded story, with lively, meaningful illustrations, offers a wealth of opportunities to connect with the emotional intensity of loss and the painful struggle inherent in mourning and reconstruction. --Bereavement Care

Sunderland's whole series is excellent. I find I recommend each one... Good writing, wonderful artwork, a real impetus to use the material --Adoption Today

A vital resource for all parents and child professionals --Families Magazine

I have used this book with many teenagers i have counselled. It is extremely beautiful & completely captures the feelings that come with the loss of a loved one. Highly recommended, although i would read it first before using it with a child as it made me cry.

Following the death of my disabled daughter (one year old), I was recommended this book to read with my three year old son. It has been a painful time for my family and this book is one of many we use to help comfort and explain the pain of grieving for a close family member. My son loves the story and continuously asks questions about what is happening. The discussion that takes place during the story is priceless - discussion that would be difficult to replicate through day to day conversation. The illustrations are simple and appropriate for a young child. I like the fact the characters show little facial expression as I guess this allows the child reader to explore their own emotions without being influenced by the characters own emotions. I would suggest the book works best when read together with the child - to really explore the meaning.

When I read the book with my counsellor, I cried, as the poignant story is a very true reflection (for me), of the journey I am on at the moment. It was emotional reading this journey in such a clever way.

The cover is not as thick as some children's books but my son doesn't care and if it meant the book was published rather than not (due to printed a thicker book being too expensive to print), then that's good for me. The book is well worth it. I don't think children care about the quality of the pages!

This book is a real find.

Not just for children, this illustrated book has the ability to assist anyone who has suffered loss come to some sort of understanding of their grief. Margot Sunderland has the uncanny knack within her books of exploring with metaphor our hidden anxieties, fears and concerns.

We bought this for my son after the death of his grandfather and it helped to sit and read through this with him. A nicely illustrated book that I think has helped him get over the initial loss quicker than he may have done.

This is a very clever way of helping a child understand the grieving process that takes place when somebody that you love leaves your life. I love all the Margot Sunderland stories and this is no exception.

Bought this for my two girls age 5 & 9. It's a sensitive story which doesn't shy away from the stark reality of loss. Encourages acceptance of loss and validates the painful feelings that can arise. There is a thread of hope throughout and a happy yet realistic ending.
