Marie-Louise Gay says:
A lovely, poignant, marvelously illustrated novel about a young boy named Harvey whose father suddenly dies. A simple story about death and the impact it has on a child’s imagination. Harvey tells the story with a sense of wonder and terrible sadness. He fantasizes about The Incredible Shrinking Man and feels himself disappearing when he finally sees his father in his coffin. The delicate drawings of Janice Nadeau create an emotional rhythm throughout. Breathtaking.
