Blurb (from Goodreads):

       A beautifully illustrated story about elderly cats, young cats, and helping children overcome the death of a pet, from the author of Just Because, Sometimes, and Zoo Girl

Toby’s cat, Jack, is the best cat ever. But Jack is getting old, and Toby will miss his furry best friend terribly when he’s gone. Then Toby meets a crazy cat called Humphrey. In this charming and beautifully illustrated picture book Rebecca Elliott addresses the difficult subject of a child's first experience of the death of a pet with warmth, sensitivity, and well placed humor.

This was such a sweet but sad story! I felt so sorry for Toby when his cat died, but it was nice the way he got to say goodbye, and nice that he later got a new cat, even if it couldn’t replace Jack. I will definitely be using this book to teach my 4-year-old about death when it is time.
9 out of 10
