Publisher's Synopsis

When someone you love has died there will be sad days and angry days but also happy days and fun days.

Nobody lives forever ... and some wish they could have stayed for longer ...

This sensitively-written and deeply-moving picture book will help children grieve, celebrate and learn how to live and love life when a parent is gone.

Praise for When I'm Gone:

"Beautiful, humane and deeply moving, with illustrations that made me gasp out loud.." Phil Earle

"Marguerite McLaren writes so beautifully and directly about the subject of loss. The reader is given permission to feel all of those difficult feelings that come with grief and also to celebrate happiness and life. Hayley Wells's illustrations are a perfect match. The love in this book makes it shine, I was left with such a warm glow." Polly Dunbar

"This is such a beautiful book - heartbreaking and kind and gentle and wise." Alex Latimer


With expert advice from the charity, Child Bereavement UK.
