A very moving journey through grief: Pockety the tortoise has things to teach you
In this simple story about grief, and the continuation of life, a tortoise mourns her lost friend, learns to live alone, and finds ways of being happy again. Moving, funny, and insightful, Pockety captures the feelings of losing someone we love – from denial and anger to eventual peace – through the world of a young tortoise. It speaks clearly to something we all experience: what we must pay for having love in our lives, and how we may grow around those losses. Pockety is a tale for everyone, young and old, and for anyone who has ever loved.
