A brass band playing "When the Saints Go Marching In" kicks off the production, which is just as engaging and beautifully produced as the award-winning recording of the first title.

Starred Review" "...Gilbert delivers an extraordinary narration. She aptly voices the myriad emotions experienced by this grief stricken boy, varying his tone and pitch, often heartbreakingly. Equally, she succeeds in creating believable and fully fleshed-out characters by clearly differentiating among their voices, respecting gender and age and using authentic native dialect. Spot-on pacing of this thoughtful story solidly establishes a sense of time, allowing the listener to walk every step of this journey with Thomas until its beautifully hopeful end. Death and suicide are topics often tiptoed around, especially with young children. This affecting production may help to initiate important conversations." Booklist
