Heriotza gai zaila izan daiteke haur literaturan jorratzeko. Bruno da liburuko protagonista etaaitonaren heriotza bere ikuspegitik bizi dezakegu liburu guztian zehar. Gai zaila umorez eta oso modu xamurrean jorratzen du Amelie Friedek. Oso gustora irakurri dugu. Ilustrazioak txuri beltzean dira eta sinplean bereziak dira. Liburua Hiria argitaletxeak kaleratu zuen 2003. urtean.

Heriotza modu xamurrean jorratzen zuen beste libururen bat ere aurkitu dugu azken hilabeteetan, bat aipatzekotan “el pato y la muerte”, bertan heriotza marraztuta agertzen da eta ahatearen heriotza kontatzen zaigu ipuinean. Heriotza hark maitemindu ginduen. Irakurri aukera badaukazue! Polita da benetan.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978755049, Hardcover)

In this touching and beautifully illustrated book, children will learn about death alongside Bruno, whose grandfather passes away. Throughout the narrative, Bruno's emotions mature from confusion, anger, and loneliness to acceptance. Experiencing the bewilderment that often accompanies the death of a loved one, Bruno asks, Is Grandpa just sleeping? Is he in a grave or in heaven? Why did he leave without saying goodbye? With humor and delicacy, this poignant story portrays the complexity of losing a friend and relative and teaches children that in death lies a beauty and depth to life.

After his beloved grandfather dies, a young boy feels confused and sad as he struggles to understand the meaning of death.
