PreS-Gr 2—Adults notice that the text never uses the word "death." Very young children notice that Miles, an old
dog, is about to lean into his very best adventure. Slightly older children grasp all of it. Heartbreaking and
breathtaking, this is the very best book for the late Burningham to leave in his wake.

Warning - one page with bathtub scene revealing little boys privates.
Illustrations do not portray the father of children being present. Could be a great a talking point for dads in the military or who travel for work.

Beloved Miles is an old dog. Sadly, it is clear to his humans that his remaining days are numbered. His fanciful flights in Mr. Huddy's airplane are metaphoric and touching. All good dogs should go out flying.
