A masterpiece. Beautiful description of what it means to feel deeply sad about something. It's a very personal and honest account of how a loss never really leaves you, and how sadness comes and goes like waves.The language is simple and moving (like the best poetry), and doesn't trivialise grief with a disney finish of rainbows after the storm etc. But he does include things that help him (talking/writing etc). The book is perfect for helping children better understand their own sadness. I just love it.
