Matt James’ The Funeral in The New York Times

matt james funeralWe are thrilled for Matt James who has seen great success with The Funeral, his first book as both illustrator and authorNot only has the children’s book stacked up five starred-reviews, it received a lovely mention in The New York Times piece “How Do You Talk to Children About Death? These Books Can Help.” “James has an ear at child level and beautifully and convincingly shows us children who fidget during the service and consider a mourner’s hairy ear perhaps more than they think about the deceased. But they are not completely irreverent, just children, who are full of life.”
