I’ve got something a little different to share with you today.  When I was first approached by author Gail Aldwin to see if I’d be happy to review This Much Huxley Knows I wasn’t sure if it was a children’s book or adult fiction.  Would my son rather read about a seven-year-old? But actually, this is a lovely book, most definitely a book for parents, and makes for a rather lovely read.

This Much Huxley Knows

This Much Huxley Knows is told through the eyes of seven-year-old Huxley who lives in London.  The pandemic may not have hit yet, but the country is totally divided by Brexit and no one can avoid the rising tensions in their communities.

A little like my own son at times, Huxley doesn’t conform to the norm with his peers and is really rather lonely. He’s a funny little boy who sees life differently from the adults around him and he doesn’t hold their worries and concerns.  When an elderly man called Leonard who is new to the area starts talking to Leonard, his family are wary but Huxley just thinks he is lonely.  Who is right? Could the two become unlikely friends and keep their loneliness at bay?

Reading This Much Huxley Knows certainly makes you think about how easy it is for us all to make snap decisions about people without scratching the surface. Whereas children just take people at face value and don’t judge in the same way we can often be guilty of.

This book makes you smile and laugh in equal measure and it’s refreshing to see the world from this little boy’s perspective.  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link (I do earn from qualifying purchases) below for your reference.

Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 13 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
