Big PB Planet applause for Tulip and Lupin Forever by Mireille Levert (Groundwood Books, House of Anansi Press, 2009). In this unusual, touching tale, Tulip the watering fairy (a fairy with a watering can on the top of her head) tends her field of flowers, while Lupin, her dog bee, collects nectar and makes dog honey. But old Lupin starts to slow down, and one morning, Tulip can't wake him up. Her watering can overflowing with tears, heartbroken Tulip leaves the home that reminds her so much of her departed friend. But when she finally returns to the flower field, a special new bloom is waiting for her... A comforting fantasy for any child who's lost a beloved pet, and a unique stand-out among "flower fairy" illustrations and stories.
