Chip, Hardback Book

Chip Hardback



Atticus and Chip share memories in this tender and beautifully illustrated picture book about losing a pet.

Atticus wakes at his usual time, ready to feed Chip.

But when he reaches the fishbowl, Chip is gone. When Atticus asks his loved ones where Chip is, he gets a range of answers in the form of gentle but evasive ways of explaining the concept of death: Chip is in a better place; Chip has moved on.

These ideas are confusing for Atticus. Told from a child's point of view, this honest depiction highlights the importance of memory as a coping strategy when grieving the loss of a loved one.

Memories live in our hearts and keep our loved ones with us.

This gentle story is an imaginative meditation on healing from grief.
