Review quote

"A lovely simple book which leaves plenty of space for discussion and thought and consequently could be used to explore feelings about loss in a variety of circumstances." The Child Bereavement Trust; "This book explores in a most simple yet beautiful way the feelings of loss that accompany the death of someone dear... The picture and word message is simple, gently and poignant." Newcastle Herald"
