But the bone begins to grow, reaching up out of the ground until it turns into a skeleton, a skeleton with an unusual interest in his unwell younger sister Miren. As time wears on, Miren's condition worsens, and the only time she is truly at peace is when she is playing with the skeleton. But Stanley is wary of him, especially when he finally manages to get a picture, and spots a scythe at the skeleton's feet. A whimsical, heartfelt story about a boy who finds a friend in Death with the help of an unusual tree growing in his back garden."@en ;
