Publisher Synopsis:

Ernie is a twelve-year-old tycoon, always on the lookout for a fast buck. This time he stumbles onto a money-making bonanza: pet funerals. Ernie is a twelve-year-old tycoon, always on the lookout for a fast buck. This time he stumbles onto a money-making bonanza: pet funerals.  

He hires Dusty to decorate the burial boxes and Tony to dig the holes, but his prize find is Swimming Pool, a tomboy who delivers a crying jag not to be missed. Business goes through the roof -- until Ernie loses Swimming Pool over a raise and the whole venture unravels. Here is a rollicking, fun-spirited novel about friendship, loss, business -- and how we learn to express our feelings.

As a stage play, The Beloved Dearly was toured by the Lincoln Center Institute in a production directed by Elizabeth Swados. The play has also been produced at TADA!, where it was awarded the First Look Prize; South Coast Repertory; Florida Stage; and Riverside Children's Theatre; and it has been published by Dramatic Publishing.
