Product Details


Salaman wrote the clear, concise text based on a story idea that Burningham, who died in 2019, had discussed with him. Oxenbury, Burningham’s wife, created the beautiful illustrations in pencil, watercolor, and gouache. Her line drawings sensitively convey the characters’ emotions while the spare text leaves room for viewers to interpret events. A moving picture book.

Left barely begun at his death, Burningham’s second tribute to a beloved Jack Russell terrier is expanded from notes and sketches (the latter smoothly interspersed with Oxenbury’s more finished but equally spare and softly textured watercolors) into a poignant remembrance of the author. . . Goodbye, Mr. Burningham. Thank you for one last grand and memorable flight.
—Kirkus Reviews

Beautiful watercolor and pen illustrations bring Miles and his family to life. . . The text is concise in a way that says more than enough with just the right words, spreading a feeling of peacefulness on every page. . . A breathtaking story about the love and loss of a beloved dog.
