A masterfully told fable from the author of Ways to Live Forever adorned with gloriously gothic illustrations by Julia Sarda, Godfather Death warns of the dangers of making a deal with the grim reaper.
A soul-stirring reimagined Grimm tale by award-winning author Sally Nicholls and hauntingly illustrated by Julia Sarda which will spellbind and thrill readers of all ages.
When a poor fisherman chooses Death to be godfather to his son, he's sure he's made a good choice - for surely there's no man more honest than Death?
At the christening, Death gives the fisherman a gift that seems at first to be the key to the family's fortune, but when greed overcomes the fisherman, he learns that nobody can truly cheat Death.
