Beautifully-illustrated account of how a little boy comes to terms with the death of his beloved dog. Scrumpy is a huge, cheerful, lovable and lively hound who's almost bigger than his young master Ben, who is left desolate by the loss. His mum tells him "it's good to cry" and explains the dog is in no more pain. Also good is the end - when Ben realises a new dog is "not a replacement" for his beloved Scrumpy. Yes I found this book very sad - but it's not without humour. (I reckon the illustrator must have a real affinity with dogs!) And would make an ideal tool for parents struggling to explain the loss of a pet.
