We wanted to use an extract from Charlotte's Web, but the lawyers have said no at the last minute. We're trying for the rights to a passage from Velveteen Rabbit, but we have very little time before the print deadline.
We need a death scene from a children's book that we can quote. (Preferably one without any overt mention of Christianity. Bonus points for an undercurrent of hope/hints of reincarnation/ theme of 'life goes on'.)
