Mister Ego and the Bubble of Love is simply wonderful! This children’s book will resonate with all the parents who have been touched by Eckhart Tolle’s books. If you’ve been looking for a way to help guide your child along his or her soul’s journey, then this book has a lot to offer.
The themes in Mister Ego and the Bubble of Love are the same as in Tolle’s The Power of Now, A New Earth, or his own newest book for children, Milton’s Secret. The art of staying present and overcoming the pull of the ego have now been encapsulated in the simplest language that any child (or, for that matter, many adults) can understand. There has been a real need for this kind of book for children — a fact that the publisher addresses at the beginning of the book.
Amber Hinton explains the themes of presence and ego in a lovely and whimsical manner, perfectly suited to a child. One finds oneself sympathizing with the main character in his frustration, anger and sadness, and no doubt children will identify with him as well. Hinton captures perfectly the swift mood swings of a young child and uses that understanding to good effect as she conveys important concepts in clear, simple language. Mister Ego and the Bubble of Love is written with a light touch, and is full of humor and joy.
The illustrations, by Gabreyhl Zintoll, are perfect, and jewel-like in their color and power to captivate the eye. Children and adults both will be drawn into the vibrant and magical illustrations, and enjoy searching out the many hidden gems in each picture. There is a real flow and beauty to Zintoll’s art that perfectly highlights the mood of the main character, and his changing view of the world. Milton’s Secret by Eckhart Tolle and Robert S. Friedman Illustrated by Frank Riccio
