From the author of the modern classic and bestselling phenomenon The Invisible String comes a tender story about permanent loss that also celebrates the joy that animals give us in this life and beyond.

“When our pets aren’t with us anymore, an Invisible Leash connects our hearts to each other. Forever.” That’s what Zack’s friend Emily tells him after his dog dies. Zack doesn’t believe it. He only believes in what he can see. But on an enlightening journey through their neighbourhood and through his grief he comes to feel the comforting tug of the Invisible Leash and it feels like love.

This book is a great description of the experience of loss, healing from the loss and realizing we are always connected to every pet we have ever loved. I love this book not only for children, but also for adults as many of us are greatly impacted when we lose a beloved pet. This is a great compliment to the series and will be a useful tool for therapist, teachers and parents.
