What is the bravest thing you ever said asked the boy Help said the horse Gorgeous beautiful black wite brown white colour drawings, really beautiful For me though it is not a 5 star which is the average rating I think at Goodreads, why, because it is a bit a bit of supersweet cuteness and morality overkill This is probably because I m used to read dark books So maybe I am not the target group for this book But, definitely a book to leaf through, read the wisdom, be in awe of the beautiful drawings,revisit so keep it close on your table, and be captured by the cute friendship between the boy, the mole personally I liked the mole best, because of the humor in its statements , the fox and the horse in the beautiful drawings Okay, 3.7 for meDo you have a favorite saying , asked the boy Yes , said the mole What is it If at first you don t succeed, have some cake I see, does it work Every time This is what Waterstones says Waterstones Book of the Year 2019, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse was an instant favourite with our booksellers A book to bring people together, Charlie Mackesy s inspirational paintings and delicate calligraphic text are a celebration of kindness, compassion and understanding, conveying an essential message for our time Soothing balm for the soul in these turbulent, polarised times This delicately illustrated tale shows that love towards yourself and others is the only thing that truly matters in our hectic world Nia at Cardiff A poignantly human, refreshingly pure and beautifully curated book Izzy at Piccadilly. This review will be a little different Because there really is no way to sum up this gorgeous book that I discovered thanks to a Waterstones ad on Twitter The blurp already tells you all you need to know about the story so I m just here to show you a few of my favourite pages that will simultaneously give you an impression of the art and the message behind it.A true work of art with a wonderful message The art style is not something I thought would be for me but it turned out to be rather wonderful and I enjoyed it tremendously. when i first saw this title and cover, i said AWWWWW and then, over the holiday season, so many people were praising this book in print and in person, i knew i needed to get a copy for myself OR, to get a copy for greg because fox and read it before gifting it to him because i am a monster.for me it s a mixed bag on the one hand, the artwork is gorgeouson the other hand, thiswhich just, no like capital letter NO with all of my being.again, i am a monster this is known.show me a cute animal, and i melt like an ice cap, but human children inspire nothing outta me but low level panic, gracelessly suppressed i m justnot interested, which makes me feel guilty as a human person and plays its part in my nightly insomniac personal reckoning shame spiral also keeping me from sleep is my cynical inability to be charmed by the well intentioned but facile insights this book offers up to readers because people are getting genuine comfort from this book and i feel like a dick for rolling my eyes and imagining these words carved on a block of wood and sold for like twenty dollars.does this book have messages this girl needs to hear hell yes but then this happensand it s like that olde aesop s fable about the signal and the noise.i am a monster my dreams aren t coming true, my ship s not coming in, at least i have my health doesn t apply, i m growing old and bitter, and platitudes really only work for people with vanilla froyo problems if i treat it like a book written in a foreign language, it s great i can enjoy the pictures, and i can recognize the individual words even though the messages mean nothing to me i am a monster like the mole, i will eat all your cake.also, i miss calvin and hobbes THE ENDcome to my blog What do you want to be when you grow up Kind, said the boy What is the bravest thing you ve ever said asked the boy Help, said the horse.This story is too pure for this world and I am not okay Being honest is always interesting said the horse.This is one of the prettiest books I own and I loved every page I didn t get this as a Christmas present like everybody else because nobody I know in real life is that thoughtful or even reads for that matter I need better friends. Instagram wisdom Winnie the Pooh for adults, maybe Required reading for work I hate this book I hate the font, I hate how expensive it is, I hate that I had to read it, I especially hate that it was exactly what I expected it to be I never would have read it had I not been forced I had forgotten that I initially read the introduction, which caused me to stop reading.The introduction says something like, Ooh, look at you, starting at the beginning I never do that Fuck you You don t know where I started reading this book just bc I m reading the introduction at this moment, Mr Condescending I Color Outside the Lines Here Let Me Show You How It s Done This book is Superficial I m pretty sure this hate review is longer that the book.
