Sally Goes to Heaven by Stephen Huneck is a graceful story about a dear pet that dies and what it is like in heaven for her. This book is perfect to recommend to a parent or child that has lost a pet. I love the sentiment and I know children all over will appreciate the loving care of this story. The story is told straight forward and in simple terms.
The artist's note: "To create a woodcut print, I first draw the design of the future print in crayon, laying out the prospective shapes and colors. I then carve one block of wood for each color in the appropriate shape. The result is a series of carved blocks, one for each color in the print. After a block has been inked with it's respective color, acid-free paper is laid onto the block and hand rubbed. I repeat the process for each color block. When this process is completed, I then hang the print to dry."
