What happens if someone dies on a plane?

Can we give Grandma a Viking funeral?

Why don't animals dig up all the graves?

Will my hair keep growing in my coffin after I'm buried?

Every day, funeral director Caitlin Doughty receives dozens of questions about death. In this book she offers factual, hilarious and candid answers to thirty-five of the most interesting questions posed by her youngest fans, sharing the lore and science of what happens to, and inside, our bodies after we die. Why do corpses groan? What causes bodies to turn strange colours during decomposition? and why do hair and nails appear longer after death? The answers are all within . . .

Reviews for Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?: Big Questions from Tiny Mortals About Death

Nobody likes to think about mortality, but if you're going to, there are far worse places to start than Doughty. WILL MY CAT EAT MY EYEBALLS? is funny, dark, and at times stunningly existential, revealing not only how little we understand about death, but also how much kids can handle. As to whether or not your cat will eat your eyeballs? You'll just have to read the book to find out - GUARDIAN
