Paws + Edward by Espen Dekko and Mari Johnsen - ADVISABLE

Paws + Edward by Espen Dekko, illustrated by Mari Kanstad Johnsen.  PICTURE BOOK.  Kids Can Press, 2019.  $17. 9781525301353



Edward’s best dog friend Paws is getting on in years; he dreams about chasing rabbits and cars instead of actually chasing them.  Paws lets Edward chase the sticks instead of chasing them himself.  Then one day Paws slips into that sleep without dreams.  

Picture books about death for children are a hard to write, but Dekko writes a gentle book showing a beloved pet slowing down and then moving on. This is one children can read on their own or with an adult.
