But in the heaven of animals, the love you have for your animal friends lives on.

"Tillman describes a heaven for animals that is a magical place." - School Library Journal
"Fans of Tillman's sentimental rhyming couplets, pretty pictures and relentlessly positive worldview will welcome this vision of a happy heaven populated by pampered pets, ethereal angels and friendly animals of all sorts . . . This is likely to be another best-seller to add to her list." - Kirkus Reviews
“Tillman has an uncanny knack for providing images of pure pleasure; perhaps because of its weightier theme, this is a particularly affecting addition to her library of titles.” -Publisher's Weekly
