Hi Folks!!

This month I read some really quick books, and thought I would combine reviews and share them all in one post.

Today I have quick reviews for two books. The first book is a cute children’s book called The Little Red Kite By Ellie Brown and the second is The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.

So without further ado lets get into todays mini reviews!!

The Little Red Kite by Ellie Brown

Format: eBook

Source: LoveReading UK

Genres: Children’s books

Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“‘A few years ago I was asked if I’d like to make a documentary on the Mekong River, travelling from the vast delta in Vietnam to the remote and snowy peaks of Tibet.

Up until that point, the farthest East I’d been was Torremolinos, in the Costa Del Sol.

Here’s the thing:

I am scared of flying. 
I have zero practical skills. 
I can’t survive if I am more than a three minute walk from a supermarket.
For the last seven years I have suffered with crippling anxiety.
I bolt when panicked. 
I cannot bear to witness humans or animals in distress.
I have no ability to learn languages. 
I am a terrible hypochondriac.

Oh, and I am no good with boats.

So I said yes.'”

My Thoughts & Review

Little Red Kite is cute little book that follows a kite that goes on an adventure and builds a friendship with a Little Blue Bird. It really teaches the little ones about friends and how they are there for each other, in an easy to follow story.

The illustrations are also so cute!!! I like how the illustrator has used nice soft colours and they are just right for little one to follow along while the story is read to them.

This would definitely make a nice bedtime story for little one.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse

by Charlie Mackesy

Format: Hardback

Source: Gifted by friend

Genres: Fiction

Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

A book of hope for uncertain times.

Enter the world of Charlie’s four unlikely friends, discover their story and their most important life lessons.

The conversations of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse have been shared thousands of times online, recreated in school art classes, hung on hospital walls and turned into tattoos. In Charlie’s first book, you will find his most-loved illustrations and some new ones too.”

My Thoughts & Review

When I first saw this book at the bookshop I thought it was a children’s book and didn’t really take much interest in it. But a friend sent me a copy and I’m so grateful. This book was simple yet beautiful. It’s a great book to pick up at any time of day and is super quick to read. this is a book that you’ll come away with something thoughtful no matter what mood you’re in.

I loved this book but one thing I did struggle with was the handwritten content. Honestly it was nothing to do with the authors work but I’ve always found cursive writing difficult to read so, if you’re like me just beware. 

I definitely recommend this book it will definitely hit you with all the feelings.
