Summary (From the publisher):

One day Mamma came early to get me from school. She told me Daddy was in the hospital. I knew that would happen.

Indeed, the young narrator and her parents have talked about the fact that Daddy has cancer and is dying. Mamma has explained that as the leaves are changing color, Daddy is changing inside. And just as the leaves will fall, he will die. The three of them have cried together. But they have also lived and loved together, and they have many rich, funny, wonderful memories. Enough to make into a book with words and pictures. Enough for you to savor, to laugh over -- and perhaps enough to make you cry. This is a book about death, but it is also a book about life -- and love.
