Alice’s grandpa has just died and Alice can’t stop asking questions: Is he suffering? Is he hungry? Thirsty? Cold? Is he bored? Her father comforts her: « Grandpa’s body doesn’t feel anything any more, not pain, not hugs. He’s dead,… Read more that’s it. » By expressing what has happened in simple words, the text responds to the concerns all children feel: sadness, mourning, the fear of dying, the fear of one’s parents dying… Without dramatizing in words or in pictures, this book plays an essential role in answering children’s questions.
