Milo and Ze: A Tale of Friendship by Mark Watson is the story of an adorable pet, Milo, who finally escapes from his kennel when it is broken into pieces. He looks into the crater and sees a fallen star. The star tells Milo that it has come to help him as it watched him while he was dreaming. The star tells Milo that he will meet a friend at his journey's end. And off they go on a journey across the bridge, through towns and onto the roads. Milo sees many new things on his journey and meets a lot of new people, until he finally meets up with a little boy, Ze. The book conveys a good message of enduring hardships in life to reach one's goal and emerge a winner.
I enjoyed the story for its beautiful concept. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they add life and color to the characters and scenes. The book will make a good bedtime story and it is also perfect to use for read aloud sessions in school libraries and classrooms. The concept and the message conveyed through the story are very helpful in teaching kids how to look at life and handle the challenges they face in life. The book teaches young readers new things and ideas, and helps improve their vocabulary. The story is emotional and touches the hearts of readers. Milo finally finding his home is an emotional as well as a joyful moment.
