"Londner handles a difficult topic with great sensitivity and admirable restraint, while Avilés s verdant scenes at the cemetery are beautifully realized; she reassures children that this sad and even scary setting can be a place of solace and fond celebration." --Publishers Weekly  
"This is a book that celebrates a life, full of Boy Scout knots and costume parties, and that s more than enough." --Kirkus Reviews
