With emotional elegance and nuance, he welcomes and unpicks each layer of mourning and explains why its ok to be sad. A painful, yet surprisingly uplifting read thats suitable for both children and adults. * The Independent * A beautifully illustrated read for adults and children about love and loss which explains why it's ok to be sad sometimes * Psychologies Magazine * If you read just one book to a child who has experienced the death of someone close to them it should be (this) * Daily Telegraph * Explains sadness and grief in a manner that children can comprehend * Gobblefunked * The beauty of this book is that the words and the pictures knit together so well. -- Tony Ross Important and astonishing . . . Blakes pictures are a triumph. They combine perfectly recognisable portraits of Rosen with expressionism, proving that Blakes seemingly spontaneous style is born out of practice and precision. Both the words and the images articulate strong emotion with admirable economy and convey a sense of the preciousness of life without being sentimental, platitudinous or falsely hopeful. At moments, the story is even funny. This valuable book is painful, but its honesty is surprisingly uplifting. It is a huge achievement by both author and illustrator. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * An eloquent and affecting portrait of sadness, this book packs wisdom into very few words. * The Guardian, Picture Books on Prescription * Featured in 20 Greatest Mental Health Books in Happiful. * Happiful * One of the greatest books on grief for children, indeed, for anyone. * i News *
