Review for Abbott & Barley

Review for Abbott & Barley

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

A father and a son (both donkeys) are on a holiday (from fishing to visiting deserts), but will they find the one spot that is special to them both where nobody has been to yet?

I have to say I was wondering a bit if this was all imagination/fantasy, as it was all very very magical. Oh you want to go swimming with whales? Sure, hold on to this jumps into the water. Oh you want to go to the moon? Sure, here let’s just convert the caravan into a rocket. It was still wonderful, don’t get me wrong, but I kept waiting for a twist that this was just all storytelling.

The art was gorgeous though, and I loved that not all the pictures have text, instead relying on the images (and the comic style a few pages had) to tell the story.

The ending made me aww, it was just superduperadorable. I am happy for both of them, and I hope that they will have many more adventures in the future.

All in all, even with the magical (and a bit over the top) story, I still loved it. It was very sweet, and I liked that the father did all those things for his son.
