5 stars
I chose this book from the library based on who the author was and the cover. Our family are huge fans of Nicola Davies' nature books.

This book is different, in that it uses the description of the building of a pond by a family to express how they cope with the loss of the father of the family. The grief expressed is honest, there is darkness and anger before the family can come to terms with their loss.

This would be a good book for any child who has experienced the loss of a parent.
