The Invisible Leash
The Invisible Leash by Patrice Karst with illustrations by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff
Here is the very best news ever: 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 Jojo dies. "The Leash has the magic power of infinity to stretch from here all the way to the beyond," Emily explains. Zack doesn't believe it. He only believes in what he can see. But on an enlightening journey through their neighborhood -- and through his grief -- he comes to feel the comforting tug of the Invisible Leash. And it feels like love.
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.
