Description

Aware their grandmother is gravely ill, four siblings make a pact to keep death from taking her away. But Death does arrive all the same, as it must. He comes gently, naturally. And he comes with enough time to share a story with the children that helps them to realize the value of loss to life and the importance of being able to say goodbye. Glenn Ringtved is a best-selling and award-winning Danish children's author, whose books have been widely translated. Charlotte Pardi is a well-beloved Danish illustrator, who has created numerous books since her first picture book in 2000. Robert Moulthrop is a published playwright. He lives in Greenwich Village, New York City.show more

Review quote

"Now comes a fine addition to the most intelligent and imaginative children's books about making sense of death -- the crowning jewel of them all, even." -- Maria Popova, Brain Pickings "Rich and affecting." -- Mark Levine, The New York Times "In this empathic picture book, [...] Pardi creates a cozy, lived-in ambiance in her pencil and watercolor art." Publishers Weekly "The removal of any parental buffer in this episode reinforces the salutary suggestion that children are resilient enough to be in death's presence without fear. [...] Gentle, wistful reading for times of imminent loss." Kirkus Reviewsshow more
