This is essentially a sympathetic carefully written book about death. Badger has been getting old, he uses as stick and his legs don’t work so well as they used to do.

When he doesn’t come out in the Spring, the other animals remember him; the things he taught them – for fox, how to do his tie up properly, & the frog learnt how to ice skate. At the end of the book it is mole who makes a very touching observation.

It is a lovely book. There are no references to any religion at all, and is all the better for that. It is my ‘go to’ book when asked for books when a young child has had bereavement. It is very subtle and beautifully written and illustrated.
