Book Details

Where Lily Isn't is Julie Paschkis and Margaret Chodos-Irvine's beautiful bereavement picture book celebrating the love of a lost pet.

Lily ran and jumped and barked and whimpered and growled and wiggled and wagged and licked and snuggled.

But not now.

It is hard to lose a pet. There is sadness, but also hope—for a beloved pet lives on in your heart, your memory, and your imagination.

"Understated but powerful . . . with a sweet, unforgettable ending." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"
Beautifully written and illustrated . . . answers a real need that children have." —School Library Journal

"Poignant . . it’s the authentic specifics about the experience of loss, unfolding in Paschkis’ quietly rhythmic prose, that make it so real as well as so sad. Chodos-Irvine’s light-filled stencil and gouache artwork is key to controlling the mood." —The Bulletin, starred review
