Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Stephanie R. Pearmain
Jim's dog has died and he is having a difficult time returning to his regular life at school. His friends are having a hard time understanding that he needs some time and space to mourn his loss. They do not always say the right thing and Jim becomes angry that no one seems to understand how he feels. The teacher tries to comfort Jim and explain to the other children that he just needs some time to feel sad that Muffins is gone. At the end of the school day, Paul and Jim share a piece of pizza and talk about Muffins, remembering her fondly. Through tears and smiles, Jim begins to deal with his feelings for the first time and the reader is left feeling he is going to be okay. The illustrations are soft pastels that truly convey the vast number of emotions the children experience. Reviewer: Stephanie R. Pearmain
