What is a 'good death'?

"Oriola Wants a Good Death" is a story about an old bird who is thought to be dead by her friends. When she finally comes to, Oriola shares with her friends what a 'good death' would entail.

I was inspired to create this story after reading Katy Butler's important book, Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death.
I liked the idea of using little animals, in story form, to illustrate that giving consideration and thought to our inevitable death, and how we would like to die when we're old, is not as threatening as we have been led to believe.


The photos show - from left to right - the cover, inside cover, cast of characters, and the opening scene of the story.

Beautiful message and art. Love the doll featured in this lovely book. Can't wait to print it out and make a fun natural wood and wool binder. Thank you for sharing your lovely talents.

This stone is adorable. When I turned it over it continued to surprise with yet another charming drawing. Can't say enough about these beautiful creations.
