Description

In this gentle meditation on the cycle of life, author and illustrator Paloma Valdivia gives us an opportunity to reflect on those who have gone, those who will come, and those of us who are here in this world — for the time being.

The neighbor’s cat, a favorite aunt or the fish in yesterday’s soup have gone — and we may well miss them. At the same time, we celebrate the arrival of a new baby or a litter of playful kittens. It’s a mystery where we come from and where we are going, so why not enjoy ourselves while we can?

Paloma Valdivia’s charming illustrations bring a light touch to this candid contemplation of life and death.

Editorial Reviews

Valdivia offers a bold and surprisingly lighthearted view of existence.

— Publishers Weekly

This charmingly illustrated picture book tackles the very difficult topic of life and death and the mysteries that are so often associated with them. … A lovely addition to larger library collections.

— School Library Journal

A tribute to those who pass, a celebration of time here, and a multilayered rumination on the cycle of life.

— Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
