By Cowley, JoyIllustrated by Mousdale, Chris
A sensitive story about how to deal with the death of a classmate.
Brodie always made us laugh. He d wiggle his ears and yodel like a country singer. He was an awesome artist and drew heaps of planes and helicopters because he wanted to be a chopper pilot. We all knew Brodie w...as sick, but we never thought he d die.
