Olivia and her dog Barkley are inseparable. He’s her sidekick, her partner in crime-fighting – they’re the perfect pair. But then, one day, Barkley isn’t there anymore. Can Olivia find a way to get her happiness back?

 

For many children experiencing the loss of a much-loved pet is likely to be their first brush with grief. This touching picture book is a celebration of one of life’s most formative relationships and the kaleidoscope of emotions that giving your heart to a furry friend can bring.
