    DescriptionDill, the dog, knows his time is up, so he packs his case and tells Lily, his owner, that he's off "up there". "Can I come too?" asks Lily. "Er...not yet," replies Dill. While he is waiting for the angels to collect him, Dill explains to Lily what he thinks heaven is like: hundreds of lampposts to pee against, lots of whiffy things to smell and bones everywhere - with meat on them! But, Lily completely disagrees, she thinks heaven is quite different. Luckily, they agree to disagree just in time for a fond, and very poignant, last goodbye. Nicholas Allan is unique among picture book creators for his combination of off-beat humour and child appeal.

    Review quote
    "The single most poignant children's book ... It won't take away all the pain of a pet's death but it will make it much more bearable" South Wales Argus "A poignant, heart-warming story for everyone who has ever owned a pet, by the brilliant Nicholas Allan" Parents News "A warm and moving account of parting" Bournemouth Daily Echo "Nicholas Allan deals with the subject of death ... with the kind of comic warmth and understanding one has come to expect from this talented bookmaker" Carousel
