Description

Why do people die? How do you know if you - or anybody else - is dead? What happens when people die? What happens to the body? What happens in other countries? How do people remember their friends who have died? What is the 'Day of the Dead?' Get the facts. Then read a sobering story about how it could happen to anybody: 'Not My Fault!'

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
