What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

One summer’s day we started a business called Funerals Ltd., to help all the poor dead animals in the world. Esther did the digging, I wrote the poems, and Esther’s little brother, Puttie, cried. Early readers will love the dry humor and wonderfully rounded story of All the Dear Little Animals. Nilsson perfectly captures the child’s perspective, balancing compassion and humor. This is a very funny story about a topic that touches all of us.
