This book consists of two parts, one based on personal experience and the other fictional, both connected by the theme of death. The first part includes memories of my parents and important childhood elements. A fabricated story in the second part explains the significance of death. The illustrated book helps children empathize, and the unexpected ending in the middle prompts reflection. The distinct covers with characters and a design choice separate the two parts while offering the reader a chance for discovery.
