Full of platitudes, but had one or two cool parts. ( )

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse explores the unlikely friendship and the poignant, universal lessons they learn together.

What an adorable, cute, heartwarming graphic novel! I was a bit worried I was going to have a hard time reading the font, but I took my time with it, which was great because I wanted to spend as much time as I could with these characters.

I borrowed this book from the library, but it's a book I can see myself wanting to read again and again, especially those days where I need a little pick-me-up! This will be one I'll surely be looking out for at bookstores. It's even one of those books I could see myself framing pages of it around the house.

Once you'll read this book, it will be kept in your mind for the next time you need a book gift for someone. It's just wonderful! ( )

This is a very gentle little story about friendship and kindness. It is quite lovely, although a bit of a sleepy story as well. ( )
