An honest, brave and witty picture book about saying goodbye, death, and what happens afterwards.
Grandma is sick, even if she says she’s fit as a fiddle. Leonor notices because Grandma won’t sing karaoke anymore. And because Mummy is so sad. But Grandma doesn’t want to talk about death: Leonor is still too small. And yet she understands far more than they all think. While helping her Mummy do the compost, Leonor discovers what exactly happens with worms: they eat dead things and turn them into soil. Vegetables grow out of the soil. Leonor loves green peas and carrots. Once Grandma has grown into a carrot, Leonor wants to feed her to a horse. That way Grandma will become a horse, gallop to the stars and listen from afar when Leonor sings to her.
