A sensitive book about mourning the loss of a pet

In this poignant story, a family grieves the loss of their beloved dog, Scout. There’s pouring rain when Scout dies, and the sky looks like it’s never seen the sun. Even so, Scout’s family begins the terrible task of burying her. Then Little Brother hears the thunder rumble and realizes it sounds just like Scout growling at the mail carrier. He starts wondering where Scout is now—if she has food to eat, pigeons to chase, sticks to fetch. And his search for answers helps the whole family find a sense of peace.

This powerful story will resonate with any reader who has loved and lost a pet. 

Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Dumon Tak’s prose reads like poetic vignettes, with a graceful rhythm and distilled meaning in each spare line. It’s a study of grief, but it’s also a portrait of a family able to talk about hard things with love.”
