My thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the gift of a complimentary digital copy in exchange for my thoughts.
Two bunnies and a cat are the main three characters. When one of the bunnies becomes sick and dies, the friends find themselves wondering where their friend has gone and what happens next. The cat delicately suggests that the bunny is still with them in the garden, a part of their hearts and so a part of their lives forever.
This elegantly illustrated children’s book tackles the topics of grief and loss. Such enigmatic concepts are hard for adults to understand and explain to themselves, so how do we go about answering a child’s questions? A Garden of Creatures goes about it in a straightforward and sensitive way.
