An award-winning picture book about bereavement.
Badger is so old that he knows he will soon die. He tries to prepare his friends for this event, but when he does die, they are still grief-stricken. Gradually they come to terms with their grief by remembering all the practical things Badger taught them, and so Badger lives on in his friends' memories of him.

A beautiful story sensitively and reassuringly told -- perfect for helping children understand death.
