The Cloud Diary by Tony Gilbert
The Cloud Diary brought a tear to my eye. Very moving and heartfelt, told from the perspective of a boy who's lost his mother and is not only grieving himself but witnessing his father's breakdown. It's very well-written with appropriate illustrations throughout. I would highly recommend this to anybody who knows a child going through a similar experience.
