The Death of Death
by K. N. Parker
Death guides usually have rather normal names like John, Mary, Harry, and Jessica. And even ones not quite so normal, like Bartholomew or Ambrosia. They also have the most interesting tales behind their deaths. But one particular death guide has a few problems: she cannot remember her name or the details of her demise, and thus has no story of her own. One fateful night, she meets a young girl that may change her death forever.
Inspired by the works of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman, and in the style of Children’s tales of old, The Death of Death is a tragic, yet sweet little tale about loss and acceptance.
Suitable for ages 12 and up.
