At first glance, “The Magical Horses”, written by Beate Epp, seems to simply be a tale of adventure, but if you look closer and actually read this incredible story, you will find both wisdom and inspiration within its pages.
Although this book is mainly marketed as a children’s book, its message is one that is needed by all age groups, especially those who have lost the magic of hope and faith.
The story of “The Magical Horses” begins with a young boy named Kiran who finds himself thrown into an entirely new environment. Already upset by the sudden changes in his life, Kiran is even more devastated when tragedy strikes the family. It is at this point that Kiran’s grandfather gives him a special gift that introduces Kiran to a magical world where mice talk and horses hold the answers to peace and happiness. Although Kiran is the main human character, there are also two very important mice named Poldy and Leo. These two mice embark on a journey to learn the truth about the magical horses and why they disappeared, in the hopes of bringing these amazing beings back.
Through their journeys, Poldy and Leo learn many useful lessons, but most importantly, they learn that magic still resides in each of us. With every choice we make, we choose to make the world peaceful and loving, or we choose to make the world a dark place where magic can no longer exist. Through these two mice, Kiran learns to change his own reality. Many people have heard the saying, “seeing is believing”, but this book reminds us that sometimes it is the other way around and our beliefs become what we see in the world around us.
This book truly is a great read, not only because of its exciting story and meaningful message, but also because the narrative is truly passionate. This book is a celebration of all things natural and supernatural. In fact, it makes you believe that maybe the natural world really isn’t too far removed from the magical world…if only we could see it.
