Top 10 children's books on death and bereavement

Holly Webb’s latest book is A Tiger Tale.

For the Guardian she tagged her top ten children's books on death and bereavement, including:
The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams

When the Velveteen Rabbit’s owner has scarlet fever, all his toys have to be destroyed for fear of infection. But the rabbit has been so well loved that he’s made Real. Such a beautiful book, again not directly about death, but about being taken away from someone you love, and the way things change and carry on.
Read about the other entries on the list.
