The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Michael Rosen's Sad Book
Publisher: Walker Books
The subject of bereavement is treated in an unusual way in Michael Rosen's Sad Book, which deals with the death of the author's own son.
The main character is an adult - Michael Rosen himself. Quentin Blake's illustrations sensitively complement an account of grief that is both searingly personal and reassuringly universal.
