Up In Heaven

By Emma Chichester Clark

A new tale from this popular picture book creator, treating the topic of death with characteristic gentleness, now available in paperback for the first time.

Elderly Daisy can't keep up with Arthur any more, and then one day she wakes up to find herself in heaven! How marvellous - now she no longer feels tired or ill, and she can run as fast as she used to! But she worries about Arthur because he is so miserable, and so she sends him dreams to show him where she is, and how happy she is now. One of the questions children regularly ask is: 'Do dogs go to heaven?' This unusual book provides the dog's answer, with the sure lightness of touch and deft storytelling that we have come to expect from this author: it may well move you to tears.
