Dead Squirrel

I just read a book about a dead squirrel that is in full regamortis for the entire picturebook. That right, a picturebook- so the book featured a beautifully illustrated dead squirrel. On the last page (after they’ve buried the seemingly dead squirrel), there is a squirrel running around on a tree.  I can’t begin to express how many things I find disturbing about this book.
