A beautiful gentle story 'when the world and everything in it was younger....'
The papercut illustrations enhance the sensitivity and mystery of the story beautifully. I was moved to tears when I first read this story. I hope it will help my daughter to consider aging and death in a non-threatening way, and so far, has encougaged healthy discussion between us about growing old and dying. But for all that it is so much more about living and life, growth and transitions, love and family than about just death.
