The End of Something Wonderful
A Practical Guide to a Backyard Funeral
By Stephanie V. W. Lucianovic (Author), George Ermos (Illustrator)
With gentle humor and quirkiness, this sympathetic book demonstrates how to say goodbye to a beloved pet and give it a proper sendoff.
Children love their pets very much—and when the animals die, that loss can be hard to process. The End of Something Wonderful helps kids handle their feelings when they're hurting and can't find all the right words. In a warm, understanding, sometimes funny way, it guides children as they plan a backyard funeral to say goodbye, from choosing a box and a burial spot to giving a eulogy and wiping away tears. Most of all, it reassures them that it's not the end of everything . . . and that Something Wonderful can always happen again.
“Would have been very helpful when I was a kid. . . . [a] unique picture book.” —Mr. Schu, Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic
