«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.
- 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.
“This moving and visually stunning picture book touches on the original theme of
grieving for a loved one we never met.”
– Marie Allard, La Presse
