This book is a good companion for talking to children about a difficult topic such as death.

Unable to make sense of the sounds that disturb the night, the two brothers curiously go to where the sound is coming from. They find their mother and uncle in sorrow. And the two brothers learn that they have lost their grandmother. The younger brother has always found his grandmother a bit strange, but what does it mean to be lost? Is it a disappearance like not being seen anymore, has she become invisible! Did she lose her life? She won't be able to make pastries then! Why will we never see her again, have we lost her too? A lovely story about family and loss.
