Life and I - A Story About DeathIngram
Rosy-cheeked and wrapped in blue, with a flower in her hair, Death rides a pink bike. Death, a green-eyed little girl in this pastel world, visits small animals with soft fur and big animals with sharp teeth. She lingers with a kindly grandmother as they knit one last scarf together. She wanders through surroundings of gentle beauty and she tells us who she is.
For parents of children facing the loss of a family member, a friend, or a pet, this book finds words to express what is often so difficult to explain. It ends with such a feeling of uplift and acceptance that readers of any age will turn the last page with a smile and a tear.
Author Elisabeth Helland Larsen and illustrator Marine Schneider weave a beautiful tapestry out of direct, poetic words and ethereal hand-drawn illustrations to give voice to emotions that are moving, real, and most of all, honest.
