About this item

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 greeneyed 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 tapestry out of direct, poetic words and handdrawn pictures to give voice to emotions that are moving, real, and most of all, honest.
