This sensitively-told story for readers of all ages illustrates the inseparability of life and death. 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 an uplifting feeling and a certain acceptance that readers of any age will turn the last page with a smile and a tear. Author and Illustrator weave a tapestry out of direct, poetic words and hand drawn pictures to give voice to emotions that are moving, real and, most of all, honest.
