Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

My cat Barney died this Friday. I was very sad. My mother said we could have a funeral for him, and I should think of ten good things about Barney so I could tell them....

But the small boy who loved Barney can only think of nine. Later, while talking with his father he discovers the tenth -- and begins to understand.
