Review quote

One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it.... [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you're always someone's child; that no matter how adult you are, you're never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for knickknack). Pigeonholing this as a children's book is like saying Romeo & Juliet is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It's even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980.--Dana Lenetz "Forbes" (4/20/2010 12:00:00 AM)

I love this book, it describes how you love your baby the same way no matter how old they get. Always brings a lump to my throat. I like to give this to new mums as a gift.show more

I got this book for my daughter, but had a quick read of it first. Before I knew it, I was in tears. A very touching story about the unconditional love parents feel for their children. Note to international buyers: book contains American spelling. Illustration style is a little outdated, but children won't mind.show more
