School Library JournalK-Gr 4-- A wonderful story about an elderly groundhog who does not realize how much he has helped the animals around him. He writes a farewell letter to them, and dies. His best friend, the fox, finds it and delivers the sad news. They all sit together remembering the special times they had had with their old friend. Illustrated in pastel colored pencils, this story can be tied into themes of saying good-bye, impending death, and just leaving, such as in divorce. An important addition to most collections.
