5.0 out of 5 stars `Well done, you made it Milo, you’ve reached the home of Ze, the little boy you’ve travelled so far to see’, January 31, 2015
Author Mark Watson was born in England, and illustrator Pablo Michau in South Africa, both now live in Mataro, Spain where Mark teaches English and Pablo works as a freelance illustrator/graphic designer. After their first collaboration the two men have committed to working exclusively on children’s book. We, the readers, are the winners. Their shared sense of creativity and sensitivity as well as a natural sense of what will entertain a child and provide some important character building blocks is not only evident here- it shines! Now we are privileged to their second book MILO & ZE and the high standards they set for themselves are maintained if not surpassed.Milo is a dog who has been forgotten, locked in a kennel, until one night a blinding light comes out of the night sky and smashes his kennel creating a crater that Milo braves his way to peer into and hears a mole who asks his name and Milo discovers a fallen star: `’Never again need you wish for a friend, he waits for you at your journey’s end.’ And off Milo goes on a journey, sees a truck, meets Big the Pig who invites him to his yacht which turns out to be a leaky barge but Milo jumps ship and ultimately comes ashore to see Big the Pig safe and free. Milo meets a pelican who gives him a ride. The next ride is on a camel but a sandstorm hits, covers Milo, but he is discovered by an elephant who helps him on his journey. But more adventures arise – a tiger, a mountain goat, a cavern and finally Milo arrives at the door where lives an Indian lad by the name of Ze: Milo finally has a friend of his own.Enchanting rhyming verse, exquisite illustrations and a heartwarming adventure that simply is restorative and makes the reader feel good. Searching for friends – a great goal and a wonderful destination. Highly recommended for children and art loving adults. Grady Harp, January 15

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the sort of book that children and adults will enjoy alike, and this sort of story is an emotionally engaging classic!, January 28, 2015

This is a superbly written book, with vivid illustrations that beautifully accompany this cleverly told story. We are whisked away on an adventure, not only in terms of storyline, but also in the use of language in this wonderful book.As a teacher, I feel that this would be perfect in terms of phonics work as if this story is read out loud, it offers so much in terms of sounding out vowels, consonants but also digraphs. It is very precisely written in this respect, and I can only assume that the author had this in mind when writing it. Naturally therefore it is highly educational and it is easy to see this book being used in classrooms.’Is your name Milo? A mole enquires’, is an example of how phonemes are played with to maximum effect. Children have a chance to compare the two similar soundings of the letter ‘o’. However the next rhymes are ‘fear’, ‘there’s’ and ‘hear’, allowing the child to think about the sound of the rhymes, yet seeing that the first and third word look similar and sound similar, they can see that the middle word essentially rhymes in a different way, and looks altogether different ( the consonant ‘r’ matches). This is a very good tactic in getting children to focus on rhyme, and looking at the grapheme and phoneme correlation, and phonetic similarities. The rhyme throughout is outstanding!The illustrations are so attractive that they carry the book along almost in a 3D way. I viewed this book on my large screen PC and it looked really spectacular- the product of many hours of work undoubtedly.This is the sort of book that children and adults will enjoy alike and this sort of story is an emotionally engaging classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have book, done beautifully!, December 21, 2014
This is a beautiful story and an amazing tale of friendship. The story is fun for kids and has a wonderful message and the illustrations are delightful. I have read one other of this author’s books and I highly recommend both. This story is one you will want your kids and grandkids to have handy, whether in or book or on the bookshelf, I feel that latter is better. Great job in a beautifully written story.

Milo & Ze: A Tale of Friendship by Mark Watson is one of the cutest children’s books I have read. The message of enduring hardships and making sacrifices for a true friend is written in clever rhyming words. The pictures are drawn in vibrant colors and express the storyline perfectly. I cannot imagine any child not liking this book. This is the perfect book for all first time readers.

The storyline is very cute as it helps teaching children about dreams, friendship and persistence. It also projects sweet Bullterriers the way they should be represented. Sweet, innocent, persistent and gentle. The book is absolutely adorable! Thank you for writing it!

Nice little book to read. The illustrations are very nice. Small children, I think, would like it. It’s about a lonely dog on an adventure to find a boy to love.
