Goodbye Little Dude is the remarkable story about seven-year-old Jonathan, his classmates, and a pet turtle named Little Dude. While Jonathan is unable to care for his beloved turtle on his own, Little Dude thrives and grows under the tender care of Jonathan’s classmates. Together, they all learn that kindness, hope, and love are part of saying goodbye.
Goodbye Little Dude is unique to the children’s book market as it focuses on the loss of a class pet, and the implied loss of a beloved child. The unique nature of the subject matter is sensitive and is best suited for a young child that is faced with the loss of a loved one in his or her life.
