    Review

    Mo lives alone, and he likes it that way. The high, sturdy wall he’s built around his house protects him from the world—until one day, a crow pecks a hole in his wall and sticks his head through.

    A battle of wills ensues: the crow pecks holes in Mo’s wall as he desperately tries to fill them with cement. But one day Mo wakes to find that the wall has crumbled, and the world beyond it—which he had blocked out for so long—is beautiful; he goes looking for the crow, at last willing to admit he doesn’t want to be alone.

    This simple yet beautifully illustrated story contains layers of meaning. A photo in the background which may have been of Mo’s wife suggests he wasn’t always lonely and isolated. That adds another layer to this simple story about support networks and moving on from grief. From the power of friendship and the importance of connection to the difficulty of accepting help, it’s a great lesson in a fun package.
