The Tenth Good Thing About Barney

Judith Viorst

A young boy tells us, “My cat Barney died last Friday. I was very sad.” Barney’s mother suggests he think of ten good things to tell about Barney at his funeral. The story details his feelings and, from his perspective, the way his parents and friend Annie deal with the loss, ritual of burial and questions of afterlife (heaven, Barney’s whereabouts now).
