Celebrating the 35th anniversary of this quintessential and multi award-winning picture book about bereavement. Badger is so old that he knows he must soon die, so he does his best to prepare his friends. When he finally passes away, they are grief-stricken, but one by one they remember the special things he taught them during his life. By sharing their memories, they realise that although Badger is no longer with them physically, he lives on through his friends. 'The best book for children on this theme.' The Times Educational Supplement Winner of the Mother Goose Award 1985.
