Great Grandma, Daisy and Death

Anna Ehring & Lotta Geffenblad

Great grandma and Daisy have arranged the shrew-mouse’s funeral with flowers and beautiful songs.
“Well, that was the little death, we’ll see it as practice before the big one comes,” says great grandma.
“The big death?” says Daisy and stares at her for saying such terrible things.
“Yes, that’s when we or someone we love dies,” says great grandma.
The sun is warm and the cordial is good. Daisy and great grandma decide that death should keep away for a while.

This is the second title about Daisy and her great grandma.  The first one, Great Grandma and Love, came May 2015.
