About this book
A heartbreakingly honest account from the illustrious pairing of two former Children's Laureates. It chronicles Michael Rosen's grief at the death of his son Eddie from meningitis at the age of 19. A moving combination of sincerity and simplicity, it acknowledges that sadness is not always avoidable or reasonable and perfects the art of making complicated feelings plain. Quentin Blake says that the picture of Michael 'being sad but trying to look happy' is the most difficult drawing he's ever done. This is a picture book for all ages.
