Product Details


This story is practical and universal and will be of comfort to those who are working through their bereavement. A brilliant and distinguished collaboration.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Rosen’s poetic revelation of his conflicting emotions and coping strategies will resonate with — and help — anyone mourning a loss or dealing with an indefinable sadness.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Rosen offers no easy solutions here — but he and Blake close with the image of a candle shedding a small, hopeful light. Readers . . . will be touched by the honesty and perception here.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A beautiful, solacing book.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

While you may not want to give this to a chid who is at the moment, happy, you would most certainly give this to a child who is sad. It shows them that they are not alone, and does so brilliantly.
—Booklist (starred review)
