The Day We Lost Pet

by Chuck Young

The Day We Lost Pet tells the story of a balloon family that comes together to mourn the death of their beloved Pet. Part creation myth, part fairytale, these odd and endearing balloon characters harness the language of science and nature in order to understand life’s most difficult moments. In a starred review Kirkus Reviews calls The Day We Lost Pet “breathtakingly original” and writes that “this supremely tender book is one that readers will return to again and again, if they can bear it, finding new meaning with each reading and in each new stage of life.”
