Mending Peter's Heart is a book designed to help a child come to
terms with the emotional issues raised by loss. In this case, it is through
the loss of a beloved pet, Mishka, that Peter has to face the realities of
death and dying. A sensitive neighbor comes to Peter's aid and places the
loss of Mishka into a larger understanding and compassionate framework.
