A unique and beautiful picture book about a child's love for her pet dogs from the one and only Chris McKimmie.

I can't sleep. The moon is moving again. It's so quiet outside ever since Holly and Sparky died.

Chris McKimmie's words and pictures gently and honestly evoke the experience of loss and new life.
