What Happens Next?, Shinsuke Yoshitake. Hardback, 2017.
This sweet, poignant book is a funny and child- centric exploration of what happens when a loved one dies. A boy’s grandpa has died, and he finds his grandpa’s journal which is filled with ideas about what might happen after he dies. What would he need to take with him? How does he want to be remembered? What will he do when he’s there, wherever it is?
We absolutely adore the books of Shinsuke Yoshitake. Translated from the original Japanese, the simple, crisp illustrations and spare prose are highly entertaining. This is a book which can be revisited again and again.
