This book has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen. I’m in awe.
How To Be Happy is a collection of graphic/literary short stories, which are two of my favorite things combined into one. I was doomed to give this 5 stars.
And I would have if I was rating it solely based on the illustrations, but the execution of the stories was a little confusing.
Every time I didn’t get the ending of the storyline, I would feel a little foolish— which I really don’t like feeling while reading.
But the art featured in this collection was just utterly whimsical. Trust me when I say that it was nearly impossible to not feature every out-of-this-world illustration. I literally had to stop multiple times while reading because I was in awe over how beautiful everything was.
Here are a few of my favorites (out of too many):
My favorite stories were In Our Eden and Summer Snakes.
So, so beautiful.
