In this sweet and comforting story, Emily and Mckinney learn from their grandmother that, due to illness, she will be leaving this world shortly for the next world. The three engage in a thoughtful and loving conversation about the special moments they have shared together and the transition that lies ahead for Mema as she prepares to wing her flight to the spiritual realm. Drawing its inspiration from the Baha'i writings, this book is designed to help families with young children approach an often difficult subject in a thoughtful and caring manner.

Cynthia Jaskwhich was a creative writing artist-in-residence at South Carolina schools for many years, and traveled around the state encouraging children to explore their love of creative writing and poetry. She was a mother of six, a grandmother of four, and a widely respected and much loved member of the Baha'i community of South Carolina. She ascended to the Abha Kingdom in Septermber, 2002.

Luthando Mazibuko, illustrator of How Riley Tamed the Invisible Monster, has had a passion for drawing since his early childhood in South Africa. He is currently a graduate student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he is studying to be an art teacher.
