The Lovereading4Kids comment
Jack is just a lovely cat: not snooty, like some; never angry; fun to play with! As Jack gets older though, it’s like he’s fading away. When Jack dies, his family have a little funeral for him, and – after a time – another cat. He’s not Jack, but he’s still pretty awesome. This lovely book will help children come to terms with the death of a pet. Rebecca Elliott’s illustrations beautifully convey the detail of family life, before and after Jack, the faces of the people and animals alike hugely expressive. ~ Andrea Reece
Missing Jack by Rebecca Elliott

In this charming and beautifully illustrated picture book Rebecca Elliott addresses the difficult subject of a child's first experience of the death of a pet with warmth, sensitivity and well placed humour.
