The Great Blue Yonder (PB) by Alex Shearer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


You'll be sorry when I'm dead. That's what Harry said to his sister, before the incident with the lorry. And now he is just that - dead. And he wishes more than anything that he hadn't said it. He wishes he could say sorry. And say goodbye to everyone he left behind - his mum, his dad, his best friend Pete, even Jelly Donkins, the school bully. Now he's on the Other Side, waiting to move on to the Great Blue Yonder. But Harry doesn't know how to get there - until he meets Arthur, a boy in a top hat who's been dead for years, who helps him say goodbye...A poignant, funny and powerful book about grief - which makes death seem a bit less frightening, without ever patronising the reader. An astonishing, life-affirming read.
