Synopsis

The Heaven of Animals by Nancy Tillman

With all of my heart, I believe it is true that there is a heaven for animals, too. The heaven of animals is a magical place: Angels know every dog's favourite game; cats bask in their own rays of sunshine; horses thunder across the sky. The loss of a pet is heartbreaking. But in the heaven of animals, the love you have for your animal friends lives on. Bestselling author Nancy Tillman's message of comfort will help readers of all ages through the process of grieving and healing.

Reviews

Tillman describes a heaven for animals that is a magical place. School Library Journal Fans of Tillman's sentimental rhyming couplets, pretty pictures and relentlessly positive worldview will welcome this vision of a happy heaven populated by pampered pets, ethereal angels and friendly animals of all sorts ... This is likely to be another best-seller to add to her list. Kirkus Reviews Tillman has an uncanny knack for providing images of pure pleasure; perhaps because of its weightier theme, this is a particularly affecting addition to her library of titles.
