Dear Izzy, I'm a Sky Dog now. I live in Dog Heaven, because I died...

When Alfie the dog dies, he sends his owner Izzy letters in the post from his new address: The Nicest Cloud, Dog Heaven, The Sky. He wants her to know that he misses her - so much! - but his new home in heaven is BRILLIANT. There are postmen to chase, angels to tickle his tummy, and he never even has to take a bath! Can his letters comfort Izzy, who is feeling lost without him?

Sensitively balancing humour and raw emotional truth, this is a beautifully observed tale sure to reassure children experiencing loss and grief for the very first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a sad but comforting tale that mixes the raw emotions of loss and grief with the humour of what a dog might enjoy in dog heaven. * Juno *
Double-page spreads lend a pace to the story that encourages stillness and meditation on the emotional images, which would be particularly beneficial for any young readers contemplating the death of a much-loved pet. * The Irish Times *
This is a story deals with the very real, very raw pain of loss while injecting gentle humour and a sense of enduring love. The illustrations have a softness and dream-like quality that beautifully compliment the emotional content. You will want to have the tissues ready. Simply a lovely, kind story that is most comforting, cosy and genuine. * Fallen Star Stories Blog *
There is nothing forced or didactic about this gem of a book. Patricia Metola's illustrations perfectly reflect the emotions of Izzy... It is worth noting that Dawn McNiff previously worked as a bereavement counsellor, adding professional weight to what is an exceptionally comforting book, perfect for young ones experiencing loss for the first time. Every library should have a copy. * The School Librarian *
