Has Grandpa Got a Suit on?

Has Grandpa Got a Suit on?

Amelie Fried

Bruno is an observant child but he's baffled by what he sees today. To make things worse nobody wants to answer his questions. Either his parents tell him to be quiet, as in the cemetery, or they give answers that make no sense: How can Grandpa be in the graveyard and in heaven at the same time? Bruno doesn't understand. Mama says he's too little to know about the soul, but he works it out for himself. "Is the soul what I love about grandpa?", Bruno asks, getting to the nub of the matter. If it is true that grandpa's soul has flown away, it has left a big hole at Bruno's place. A hole so big he can feel it. Who will show him now how to catch fish - and how about all the other things he loved to do with Grandpa? Why has Grandpa gone and left him all alone? At first, Bruno is angry but his anger slowly turns to sadness and then, gradually, into a beautiful memory that is less and less painful.
