Summer of Love

Noah Barley Water Runs Away by John Boyne
I read this book at the beginning of my travels. It was a great way to start. This tells the story of a boy who runs away from home, why we are not sure, and travels through a magical land. It has a taste of magical realism to it, which I loved. Noah meets a talking donkey and a helpful dachshund who direct his attention to a toy store filled with very curious puppets. Noah discovers the toy maker, a curious man himself, and the touching lives of both characters are revealed through stories told around a cup of tea. There is a special little twist to the story that I definitely will not give away but will make a smile slowly creep across your face. This was my most magical story of the summer.
