This book was a gift from a friend and I was reluctant to pick it up. It was not a book I would buy for myself. Once I started reading Blue Boy I was captivated from the onset. I finally came to the realization that if more men and women were like the main protagonist there might be peace in our time..Kindness, Acceptence and Love are the main themes of this book to me....MB

Anything by Giono is excellent. I especially liked this work and would recommend it to anyone. A native of Provence Giono provides the reader with background of his native land and the characters in it are so real and full of life that you will want to visit it soon. I just got back from Provence and wish to return as soon as I can. His other works are about the same area and one can feel its allure and the wish to revisit again and again is in the air.
