About the Book

Cry, Heart, But Never Break

Written by Glenn Ringtved with illustrations by Charlotte Pardi. Translated by Robert Moulthrop.

Aware their grandmother is gravely ill, four siblings make a pact to keep death from taking her away. But Death does arrive all the same, as it must. He comes gently, naturally. And he comes with enough time to share a story with the children that helps them to realize the value of loss to life and the importance of being able to say goodbye.
