A Garden of Creatures

Two bunnies and a cat live happily together in a beautiful garden. But when the big bunny passes away, the little bunny is unsure how to fill the void she left behind. A strange dream prompts her to begin asking questions: Why do the creatures we love have to die, and where do we go when we die? How come life works this way?

With the wisdom of the cat to guide her, the little bunny learns that missing someone is a way of keeping them close. And together they discover that the big bunny is a part of everything around them — the grass, the air, the leaves — for the world is a garden of creatures.

With its meditative text, endearing illustrations and life-affirming message, A Garden of Creatures reveals how the interconnectedness of nature and the sweetness of friendship can be a warm embrace even in the darkest times. This is a tender and deeply moving picture book about loss and the big questions it leaves behind from New York Times bestselling author Sheila Heti and acclaimed illustrator Esmé Shapiro.

Description

"In a final verdant image, Shapiro (Carol and the Pickle-Toad) visualizes the idea that the departed hold the living with a spread that shows the white bunny and the cat in their garden, all enfolded safely in the embrace of the toast-colored bunny 'in a way they couldn’t quite understand.' It’s hard to find a nontraditional way of thinking about death, but Heti (Pure Colour, for adults) and Shapiro offer tranquility and solace." — Publishers Weekly
