K. N. Parkerabout this book: This story is about the truth of death, the reality of it. It's something that is inevitable, but some things can comfort you when confronted by it, whether it be the death of a love one or a pet for example. I wanted to give perhaps younger people a story that could give them some comfort during such times, something sweet. It was one of those things that just popped into my head one night when I couldn't sleep. I'm quite proud of it. It's short and sweet and I wanted to write it with a whimsical tone, which I hope is conveyed properly through the narration.
Some quotes from reviews:
• "The story has an essence of Tim Burton-esque, in the terms of creating beauty from tragedy, that sets the tone from the onset and is one of my favorite aspects. The whimsy and tragedy combined were carefully written with a beautiful plot that succeeds in building a sort of suspense throughout the story."
• "Very touching story about a topic that most of us don't like to think about. The imagery was beautiful."
