All the Dear Little Animals
By Ulf Nilsson
"One summer's day we started a business called Funerals Ltd, to help all the poor dead animals in the world. Esther did the digging, I wrote the poems, and Esther's little brother, Puttie, cried." This captivating book offers a thoroughly off-beat, charming and whimsical story of three children responding to death. It takes adults and children alike on a safe, funny and deeply meaningful adventure into the realm of death and ritual, and the cycles of life in the natural world. Hawthorn Press, 2009. Hardcover, 36 pages.
