On Wednesdays when I was little, Granny and I baked cakes and cookies....
And that was only one of the things that made Wednesdays -- and Granny -- special.
Malika Doray has written and illustrated a unique tale of love, loss, and understanding that will help and comfort anyone who has lost someone important, and open the way for all of us to talk about the mysteries of life, death, and eternity.

Wednesdays are always special for one certain little bunny. Every Wednesday he stays with his grandmother. They bake cookies and cakes (and then eat them up). They walk her dog, Bobo, in the park. And at the end of the day, the bunny falls asleep in Granny's lap, waiting for Papa to come pick him up. But one Wednesday he can't go see his grandmother--she's gone to the hospital. Soon after, she dies, and, with the help of his parents, the small, sad bunny tries to understand what that means.
Here is a truly lovely story about dying that is not overwhelmed by its objective. Parisian Malika Doray crafts a simple, understandable tale, told from a child's perspective, that will help any young person face the strange questions of life, love, death, and eternity. Especially touching is the mother's explanation of how, in a way, before he was born her baby bunny was already here because she and Papa wanted him so much. "And it's the same with Granny now. In some way she'll always be here because you love her so much." Unusual black brush drawings with dabs of color here and there make a visual impression not soon forgotten.
