When we first opened the package, we thought this was an instruction booklet but then realised it was the book itself. It is too flimsy feeling for a child's book, which is also easy to misplace. I found the illustrations flat, cold and generally awful, like a computer generated school project standard of work.
My six year old read this story to herself with a good comprehension of what had happened to Poppa, and said she enjoyed the book. For me, it was too simplistic, with Poppa having tummy ache and then he was a star, kind of brushing over the word or subject of death. It is a good attempt at broaching the subject, but for me, Badger's Parting Gifts will always be my number one book for dealing with death and grief with young children.
