Stories for living

In between

Abstract

«Hi! It’s me, Vincent. I know I introduce myself every time I speak to you. I always wonder if you know who I am. You died before I was born, and we never got the chance to hug. Even though you’re not here anymore, everyone talks to me about you. Even people I don’t know. It seems you and I would have got on well.»

In Between explores the theme of grief for children who have never known a deceased relative. The absence of a loved one they never had a chance to meet can elicit so many questions in a child’s mind and leave an indelible mark on the lives of those left behind.

A fresh and inspiring story where no emotions are off-limits.

Features

  • Published to celebrate Fonfon’s tenth anniversary, this picture book echoes the author’s earlier work Never Far Away by approaching the same theme from a different angle.
  • A tale to help families connect in times of mourning, no matter how well they knew the person who passed away.
  • Touching images that perfectly render a delicate subject.
