Painted Love Letters – Catherine Bateson

Chrissie dad is dying of lung cancer after a life time of smoking; an artist, he decides to paint two coffins with ‘painted love letters’. This is the story of how the whole family is turned upside down by death and dying. Whilst this is a short read, it is an authentic and compelling one. This is likely to be enjoyed more by girls than boys.
