My cat Barney died this Friday. I was very sad. My mother said we could have a funeral for him, and I should think of ten good things about Barney so I could tell them… But the small boy who loved Barney can only think of nine. Later, while talking with his father, he discovers the tenth — and begins to understand. Ages 6 and up.
