I've had a copy of this book since I was little and have read it to make me feel better every time a pet has died (6 since I have owned it). When a friends two cats died I bought this used copy for her children who were taking it very hard. They loved it also and it really did seem to help. It's wonderful without being self helpy. I definitely recommend it if you are agnostic or anyone who does not necessarily feel better reading a book that speaks only of Gods creatures. It has no religious bent which I know if very helpful for many but doesn't do much for me. Unfortunately it is no longer in print but can easily be found on Amazon used.

I read this book to my children and wanted my grandchildren to have a copy. It has many life lessons, like how to deal with the loss of a loved one and how love reaches beyond death. The children in the story are amazed to hear the memories others have of their beloved Fred. The story is presented gently and compassionately. Animals and children communicate effortlessly - but we all knew that was possible.
This book led me to others by Posy Simmonds. She is a great writer.

I haven't read this book BUT I have seen a short cartoon based on it and it was very good. It's about this familly who's cat dies from CAT FLU, and , of course their very sad about it. Well, one night, the little girl hears a sound. A cat meow! She wakes up her brother and tells him, then they go dounstairs and outside to find a cat dressed in fancy close and a top hat. Ginger { the cat with the close who is from up the street} explains to the children that him and all of these other cats are there for Fred 's funeral. Then out from the house comes the familly guinea pig who says a few words about his best friend. The children then find out that Fred was a very famous cat singer and when they try to explain to every one that all Fred did was sleep, the animals didn't want to hear it. What happenes next you'll have to read for yourself! This book is really good for kids, people with animals and/or people who have lost pets. I liked FRED because it had a good ending, it was interesting and funny. Another good book is curious and comical cats.

This book by Posy Simmonds is a wonderful exploration into the death, and life of a dear cat. It is written with ease, and fluidity making it a very read-able book for many ages groups. It was given to my son some years ago, and he is now 16. I asked him if we should get a copy for his little cousin's birthday, and his response was YES, it's my favorite, and I think I've read it a couple hunderd times.

If you read it enough many times, perhaps you can read it out loud to your child without becoming a wheeping willow. Then do that - they will get a different perspective on life and death.
It's a shame this book is Out of Print.
