One day, Huxley the bush baby wakes up to find that their beautiful sky has disappeared. There are no clouds, no sun, not even any moon.

How will Huxley make a new life without the sky that he loves so much?

We don't always get to say goodbye to our loved ones and it can be hard to make sense of why they leave. Day by day, we take on the difficult task of learning to live without them. There is no quick or easy remedy for grief, but through conversation, connection and a supportive space to remember our loved ones, our journey towards healing can begin.

Created by a doctor, this book is designed to help children cope with the loss of a loved one. It includes art therapy activities so they can explore their grief, develop their own narratives that help them understand their loss, and hold onto a spark of hope in difficult times.
