A young child navigates grief after losing a beloved family pet and learns what it means for a loved one’s presence to remain even after they are gone.
Angus may be gone, but memories of him are still here: his tail wagging under the dinner table, his nails clicking on the floor, and his hopeful sniff when snacks are being prepared. Angus’s presence is felt everywhere, until one day . . . it’s not. In this poignant and beautiful picture book, a child journeys through grief and learns how to keep memories of a beloved dog close.
