Timmy, the Flying Mouse by Denis Boytsov
Timmy, the Flying mouse is a beautiful children’s book written by Denis Boytsov.
Timmy is a little mouse with big dreams. His ultimate dream is to fly and ‘see what the world looks like from up there.’ Though his friends call him crazy, Timmy does not give up on his dream. With the help of his father, Timmy tries different ways to fly but fails. Just as he starts to entertain the possibility of giving up, an unexpected friend steps forward to lend a helping hand.
This is an inspiring and encouraging book about holding on to your dream. It shows one creature’s unwavering determination despite failures and mockery from friends. Moreover, it depicts how helpful support from family can be.
The author creates a set of admirable characters first of which is Timmy, the brave, courageous and determined little mouse who never gives up on his dream. Then, there is Timmy’s mother who does everything to make Timmy feel better after each failed effort and Timmy’s father who never says ‘no’ to Timmy instead supports him and helps him try to make his dream come true.
However, some pages did not load on my device; pages which I presume are illustrations that complement the story.
Despite that small issue, I enjoyed the book a lot and I recommend it to both the young and the old.
Congratulations to Denis Boytsov on another beautiful book!
