The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Rebecca Cobb

Probably the saddest story I know. At bedtime, I could never get through it without crying, much to my children’s bemusement. I have a gut feeling it’s based on a true story, which makes it worse. Just heartbreaking, and not in a good way. I love it so much.
