I love these books - Clementine's parents are fantastic (a rarity in children's books) and the books are genuinely hilarious. The illustrations are equally great - the one of Acorn Squash sitting in her lap while the cat sits on his is adorable and made me laugh out loud. It's hard to find books that deal with subjects like change and loss without getting too overly sentimental or didactic, but here, they were navigated with grace and understanding.
