Ages 5 to 7 years. In this touching and beautifully illustrated book, children will learn about death alongside Bruno, whose grandfather passes away. Throughout the narrative, Bruno's emotions mature from confusion, anger, and loneliness to acceptance. Experiencing the bewilderment that often accompanies the death of a loved one, Bruno asks, Is Grandpa just sleeping? Is he in a grave or in heaven? Why did he leave without saying goodbye? With humour and delicacy, this poignant story portrays the complexity of losing a friend and relative and teaches children that in death lies a beauty and depth to life.
