“Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.”―
Eleanor Roosevelt

Every now and then one stumbles upon a book that leaves you completely spellbound. You just grin as you flip across the pages, heart warms up and you get the feeling of being wrapped up in a warm caring hug- that someone out there gets you~ This is truly a book, from cover to cover it speaks about friendship, life, and beyond. It is about a boy and his companions…

I stumbled upon his sketches few months back on Instagram and since then have been hooked. The simple sketches, the words though few pack a punch and there is one for every occasion, every person.

And so I as secretly hoping someone would send me this book as a gift, and what do you my bestie did… I am far more excited receiving this book than I thought I would be, it gives me great joy every time I pick it up and flip open a random page.

It is a picture book of sorts, and yet it is not your regular picture book. When mom saw it, she said it looked like a kids book. No way, read through and you will discover it works across ages, and moments in life. It does not matter if you are happy, or sad or down in the dumps, the sketches and words just jump at you and shift your perception of things. Also a good book for gift.. timeless…

Interesting read on this book- https://www.penguin.co.uk/articles/2020/feb/the-boy-the-mole-the-fox-and-the-horse-saved-my-life.html
