Mr Horse & his friends

Illustrations by Juliette Farges

In his house on the edge of the woods, Mr Horse is feeling blue. Where have his friends gone? Hedgehog isn’t here to play pinochle, Groundhog isn’t here to pick flowers, Bear isn’t here to bake cakes… He’s overcome by a strange feeling, like a big grey cloud. He’s counting down the days, wishing he could be small again.

A book about feeling lonely and sad, and how to overcome it and find joy on your own. It’s a seemingly simple story about emotions that aren’t always easy to put into words, and the importance of friendships.
