2.0 out of 5 stars If your little people have lost a parent to cancer. This is not the book for them.
By Elizabeth Cooper on 24 August 2020
I read this book because it was read to my Grandaughter's year 4 class of 8 and 9 year olds. It really upset my grandaughyer who had the year before watched her mother die of cancer. It was way too close to my grandaughters reality.

What starts off a hillarious story. Transitions to Granny telling Ben her grandson of 11, that she has cancer and it is advanced. That she won’t make Christmas. Then there is a chapter where Ben and his parents sit with Granny when she dies.

“Ben simply held Granny’s hand. He didn’t want her to slip away into the darkness alone. They listened to her raspy breathing. It was a horrible sound. But there was only one sound worse. Silence. That would mean she was gone.”

Then there was the funeral as well.

I am conflicted. We do need to talk about death and dying more..... If a child hadn’t just been through a very similar circumstance, a child whose mother didn't die of cancer, it may be a good book. But way too much out of the blue in a book that had been funny at the start and didn't cary any warning about the sensitivity at the end...

5.0 out of 5 stars Formato y lectura de 10
Reviewed in Spain on 12 April 2019
Lo compré para regalárselo a mi sobrino de 9 años al que le encanta la lectura en inglés. Se trata de un libro de tapa blanda con colores llamativos en portada y contraportada, acompañados de divertidas viñetas relacionadas con la historia, tanto en las primeras hojas como en las últimas. Me atrajo la idea de que se tratase de un libro con un hilo divertido pero a la vez con un toque de suspense, importante para que enganche al lector infantil y no se canse y abandone su lectura ante la "dificultad" que le pueda causar el leer en otro idioma. Se desarrolla en 34 capitulos y 242 páginas y cada 5 páginas aproximadamente hay un dibujo q lo hace más ameno. En cuanto a la letra es adecuada en estilo y tamaño y el formato general del libro me parece de 10 para el público al q va dirigido.

Por ponerle un pero, le hubiera añadido un cd para practicar el listening y que "hagan oído", pero por el precio que tiene (9.95€) está muy bien.

Añadir también que en la parte final se observa una lista de los libros del autor con ilustraciones de cada una de las portadas y junto a ellas un pequeño resumen en inglés del argumento.

Si te ha parecido util mi reseña Dale Like/Util.

Gracias
