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.
