Winner of the Mother Goose Award and endorsed by Child Bereavement UK as a book to help children through bereavement. Badger is so old that he knows he will soon die. He tries to prepare his friends for this event, but when he does die, they are still grief-stricken.

Gradually they come to terms with their grief by remembering all the practical things Badger taught them, and so Badger lives on in his friends’ memories of him. Endorsed by Child Bereavement UK and with reading notes and online resources in the back of the book.
