This book was a bit depressing. I mean, it really didn't cheer me up at all, but it was a well told story all the same. Just because a story is a bit of a downer doesn't mean that it hasn't been done well. The story is a bit lengthier than most picture books, and since the book deals in death, the content should be read by someone who can handle that subject. Otherwise, it's a story worth a look.
