When Aunt Mattie Got Her Wings tells the tale of Lottie the chicken's beloved Aunt Mattie's last days on earth. Aunt Mattie has lived a long, fulfilled life and is tired and ready for what is next. Mathers tells the her story and the pain and loss her good friends Lottie and Herbie experience with grace and a touch of humor. Death here is treated as another part of life; a profound and moving experience and Mathers' clear, loving text and pictures provide a beautiful way for children to approach the concept of death.
This book should earn a place with the other children's classics, The Tenth Good Thing About Barney andBadger's Parting Gifts.
