An imaginative and haunting story about dealing with grief

It is a day when everything aches and nails are raining from the sky. Anna's mother has died. Anna and her father are making their way to the funeral.

Anna's imagination leads both of them on a journey that, by the end, might just offer a certain sort of peace.

With captivating artwork and text that is at times whimsical, at times haunting, this profound book will make a perfect companion for readers who are wrestling with their own questions about life's mysteries.

"Booklist"
This gentle meditation on life and death from the award-winning Norwegian author and artist is graced by beautifully executed, slightly surreal illustrations.
"Catholic Library World"
"Not your typical children's picture book. . . . The illustrations and prose are as beautiful as they are unusual. The publishers recommend the book for children ages six through ten, but older children and adults will appreciate this book as well. Children younger than six may not understand the story but would be captivated by the images. A child's grief is not a pretty or comfortable topic, but this intelligent and striking book is well worth a read."
"School Library Journal"
Mesmerizing and surreal mixed-media collages draw readers into this intriguing story of the many possibilities Heaven offers.
