I received this book for free as part of an Instagram tour (TLC Book Tours specifically) I did to promote the book.
This book was absolutely amazing! I loved everything about it.
The story is very simple but very profound. There are lots of little pieces of wisdom sprinkled throughout that really hit me hard. For example, this was one of my favorite passages:
“Sometimes I feel lost,” said the boy.
“Me too,” said the mole, “but we love you and love brings you home.”
It reminded me a lot of Winnie the Pooh in the best possible way. It had the same innocence and spirit.
Even though this is such a short book, I fell in love with all 4 of the characters. I particularly loved the fox because even though he was very silent, I still felt his impact.
The illustrations in this are gorgeous. They’re whimsy and magical and just perfect, especially when accompanied with the handwritten text. The text was stylized so beautifully, they almost become part of the pictures.
Honestly, I think everyone should read this book. It’s such a comforting little book that everyone can benefit from reading. Young or old, everyone at every age can enjoy this.
Also, since the holiday season is approaching, this would make the perfect gift.
Overall, if you couldn’t tell, I LOVED this book and recommend it to readers of all ages.
