Mio, my Mio. A book for children, with heart-breaking beauty. The beauty is in how it uses fairytale and lyrical resonance to spin a story that is both familiar and strange. It meant a lot to me: The unhappy boy who runs away from home, only to find out that he’s the prince of a magical realm – but the realm is in trouble. There is love in every word. It’s This Is How You Lose The Time War, only for children.
