Surrounded by optimistic friends and acquaintances, a frantic girl is looking for her lost dog, and begins to grasp an understanding of love and loss, and their eternal effect on her life.

Books that address the loss of a loved pet such as The Rainbow Bridge…A Dog's Story by Judith Kristen and Dog Heaven by Cynthia Rylant, focus on imaginative ideas of where lost pets have gone. Similarly, The Goodbye Book by Todd Parr, is another creative picture book that addresses the feelings and emotions around death and loss, and portrays several stages of grief. While these books address the loss of a loved one, Where is Bejou offers a fresh twist in that it focuses on the positive impact our loved ones contributed to our lives. Furthermore, although this is a picture book, it holds a crossover appeal for older audiences and will appeal to the gift market, anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one, and animal lovers of all ages.
