"Comfort in times of saddness"
5 stars"

I first came across this beautiful book when my 28 year old granddaughter's Ki­wi friend sent her a copy here in the UK. As she read the beautiful words to her dying grandfather, I saw a smile come across his face. It was then that I realised what a poignant read this is. On the day of her beloved “Gar's” funeral, she read the book to the mourners, and, at the end, there was not a dry eye to be seen. This book is a beautiful tool when there comes time to address the end of life, be it adult or child, the words are a constant comfort.


Everyone loved Old Hu-Hu. But nobody loved him quite as much as little Hu-Hu-Tu. Old Hu-Hu is a thoughtful tale of young Hu-Hu-Tu's search for understanding of what has happened to his beloved Old Hu-Hu, who flew all the way to the moon (or so they said), then fell down dead. Sensitively written, this is a beautiful story of death and the celebration of life, with powerful, evocative illustrations by Rachel Driscoll.
