When Grandad died, eighty-three people went to the funeral. A lot of them cried.

Jessica, Colin, Sasha and Tom thought of the good times they'd had with their Grandad. They knew they would miss him a lot.

"He had always wanted to be cremated," said Grandma, "and his last wish was to have his ashes scattered in his favourite place..."

This beautifully illustrated full-colour picture book for children aged four to eight tells the story of four children who embark on an adventure to find their Grandad's favourite place - but they are faced with plenty of challenges on the way.

Told with gentle humour, this is a charming story for children and an ideal resource for parents or counsellors to read with a child as a way of broaching issues surrounding loss or bereavement.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An interesting addition to the literature and, again, it offers a non-threatening description of cremation in the context of white, middle-class England. -- Internationa Journal of Children's Spirituality
The storydetails a journey through a year following the death of a grandfather, a year that is punctuated by memories and decisions. This is a story to share and reflect upon both with individuals and as part of a wider PHSE programme. The story would be an excellent resource to use with the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) curriculum as it would fit very well within the somtimes emotionally challenging Relationships theme. -- Pastoral Care
