🐴 This is a very sweet book, full of wisdom and insight. The problem is, it's only for those who already understand what it says. For those who don't, and there are plenty of them, it's like telling an insomniac to get more sleep. One can tell him what to do, but not how. Oh, the drawings are wonderful.

A lovely parable that reminds us that what really matters is who we love and who loves us in return. Enemies can become friends thru kindness and we should never hide our wings if others are jealous of our ability to fly. Kristi & Abby Tabby

This book is #1. Out of all the books I've read in my lifetime. It's timeless, for all ages, and the illustrations ust grab you and take you on the journey with them. Thankful Charlie Mackesy wrote this book! It belongs on everyone's nightstand or coffee table.

I'm fully grown woman, and this book made me tear up. Beautiful book, gorgeous illustrations and meaning full messages. I would recommend this book to everyone.

This book was beautiful. It is appropriate for all ages, but the font may be hard for some emerging readers to read on their own. This would be a wonderful family read aloud.

This was a very sweet, inspirational book. I love the differences between all of the characters, but I agree with Mole, cake is the best.

Worth the wait. I've been seeing bits and pieces of this book online for months now and received a copy for my birthday. The author pairs whimsical illustrations to match the title characters as he takes you on a journey of life lessons and just enough silliness to keep you smiling. Highly recommended for all ages.

“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.
