Synopsis

Dark, wry and timeless, Godfather Death is the tale of a poor fisherman who finds the fairest godfather for his son in the figure of Death—he who takes equally from the rich and poor. When Death gives the fisherman the gift of seeing who will live and who will die, the money starts to roll in—but fear, greed and selfishness are sure to follow…

Synopsis

A soul-stirring reimagined Grimm tale by award-winning author Sally Nicholls and hauntingly illustrated by Julia Sarda which will spellbind and thrill readers of all ages. When a poor fisherman chooses Death to be godfather to his son, he's sure he's made a good choice - for surely there's no man more honest than Death? At the christening, Death gives the fisherman a gift that seems at first to be the key to the family's fortune, but when greed overcomes the fisherman, he learns that nobody can truly cheat Death.
