'Jef Aerts and Marit Törnqvist have created a beautiful book about death. It is emotional without being sentimental, stepping smoothly back and forth between magic and the literalness of childhood. Aerts chooses words that are poetic but never too nebulous, and always just right. It is astonishing to see how he manages to make the mystery of mortality so tangible and deeply affecting. Perhaps most impressive of all, however, is the striking and rare symbiosis between the text and the subdued, atmospheric and circumspect drawings. Törnqvist’s rather dreamy style is perfectly suited to a sensitive subject like a sister’s death. She captures the atmosphere completely with perfectly judged colours and brushstrokes.'
