THE SCAR handles its excruciating subject matter beautifully… Tallec’s red-infused acrylic and pencil drawings convey the boy’s every expression with a sensitivity and heart that will move children and adults alike.
—The New York Times

An invaluable resource for adults who need to understand what grief means to a child-and perhaps for a grieving child, as a roadmap through it.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

When his mother dies, a little boy reacts honestly to his profound loss in this poignant snapshot of grief. The boy candidly describes his loss and concern for his grieving father with heartfelt immediacy. Simple illustrations stress the boy’s distress and isolation while powerfully conveying his progression from anger and fear to sadness and acceptance.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
