Check out our latest feature title review from Library Bound's Susan Wallace!

This gentle, uplifting fable for adults is about a group of friends travelling through the countryside. Along the way they share their thoughts about kindness, friendship, self-acceptance, perseverance, and facing difficult times. It’s the perfect book for a wintery February day in the midst of a pandemic.

The lovely half-finished b&w sketches throughout give the story a dreamy feeling, and by the end of the tale you’ll be left with a peaceful Zen feeling.

Or, just open the book at a random page and you’ll find some words of wisdom, like "'Sometimes,' said the horse. 'Sometimes what?', asked the boy. 'Sometimes just getting up and carrying on is brave and magnificent'."

For more examples, go to the author/illustrator's website.
