What Happens Next? by Shinsuke Yoshitake
What Happens Next? is a thoughtful and playful book about the possibilities of death and the afterlife, as considered by a young boy's grandfather. Shinsuke Yoshitake's previous books, It Might be an Apple and Can I Build Another Me? were also brimming with profundity and fun. All three show how you can deal with complex existential questions that children will naturally want to ask while still maintaining a sense of humour and of wonder. Tackling death and grief is no easy feat. We have this and other books that can help with this subject in our 'Feelings, Families and Friendships' section.
