About this title


When Jim returns to school after his dog, Muffins, is hit by a garbage truck and dies, the first-graders try to share his loss and ease his pain. But Jim refuses to talk or even let anyone come near him. He does not participate in any school activities and mopes about, thinking of his beloved dog. Jim does not even choose a book when everybody else sits down to read! The wise teacher points out that Jim may need more time to feel his grief.

However, on the way home from school, Paul cheers Jim up by offering him a slice of pizza and the chance to talk about his dog. Through tears of joy and sadness, Jim finally opens up and shares a sweet memory of Muffins.

This reissue deals sensitively with the way children are affected by loss. New watercolor illustrations by Ronald Himler give the children unique personalities and help readers empathize with the characters.

From the Publisher:

"Numerous books have dealt with the effect of a pet's death on a child, but few are as true to a child's feelings as the latest work by the author and artist of many previous stories about Jim and his classmates."--The Horn Book

"A useful book for children coping with the trauma of a pet's death."--School Library Journal

Everyone in the first grade feels sad when they hear that Jim's dog Muffins has been killed. His friends try to help him feel better, but Jim won't talk or listen to anyone. All he can do is think about his dog.

Then Jim's friend Paul has an idea. Will Paul's plan help Jim cry and laugh about the times he shared with Muffins?
