All the Dear Little Animals

By Ulf Nilsson
Illustrated by Eva Eriksson

A funny illustrated chapter book about three children who decide someone must bury all the world’s poor dead animals.

Esther was very brave. I was little and scared. One summer’s day we started a business called Funerals Ltd, to help all the poor dead animals in the world. Esther did the digging, I wrote the poems, and Esther’s little brother, Puttie, cried.

  • A gently funny, unsentimental story about death in the context of play, from a child’s perspective
  • Sugar-tough illustrations
  • Brings together the author and illustrator of two much-loved and bestselling Gecko Press series: My Happy Life and Detective Gordon
