Author(s): Michael Rosen & Quentin Blake
A heartbreakingly honest account of a father's grief for his son from the illustrious pairing of a current and a former Children's Laureate. What makes Michael Rosen most sad is thinking about his son, Eddie, who died.
In this jacketed hardback book he writes about his sadness, how it affects him and some of the things he does to try and cope with it. Whether or not you have known what it's like to feel really deeply sad, its truth will surely touch you.
Winner of the Smarties Book Prize: 6-8 Category Bronze Award and shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal, this book is suitable for any person coping with grief.
