When author Marilyn Pelkey's son, Kendall, was twenty-seven, he was diagnosed with an unusual and aggressive cancer. Less than two years later, he passed away.
A recently separated father of three children at the time of his diagnosis, Kendall was an outgoing and open-minded man who loved music and saw strangers as friends he hadn't met yet. In this memoir, Pelkey shares the story of their lives and of Kendall's battle with cancer. She recalls the history of their family, from her childhood through the youth and adulthood of Kendall and his sister, Elizabeth. She also explores how cancer changed her life forever as she learned to live with this new reality. The year after Kendall's death, she and many members of Kendall's family got involved with the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and they have worked hard to keep Kendall's memory alive.
This personal narrative shares a heartbreaking story, but reminds us that there can be comfort found in this second life following the death of a loved one in knowing that you are not alone.

AGES: 0 to 3 AUTHOR: The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be; Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father's home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys' home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including Spotty, Pretzel, and lift-the-flap books such as How Do You Get There? The manuscript of the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. Curious George has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favourites as Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys and Find the Constellations. Colour throughout
