“u may be sad because u are sad. it is ok to be sad but if u are sad because happiness is fleeting, just remember that sadness is also fleeting too.”

The illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, where he meets all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, while learning to feel a little better about himself—based on the enormously popular Twitter account @jonnysun.

Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, an alien sent to study Earth. Always feeling apart, even among his species, Jomny feels at home for the first time among the earthlings he meets. There is a bear tired of other creatures running in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, a turtle hiding itself by learning camouflage, a puppy struggling to express its true feelings, and many more. (Goodreads)

This was a cute, quick read that is both funny and sad. It’s a good read for anyone who has struggled with fitting in, or felt lonely, or had a hard time finding their identity. It’s really interesting to see things in a different perspective through the point of view of the lovable animal characters. At the same time it still perfectly captures the confusion of being human/defining humanity.

This book has successfully shown the beauty in sadness. Even the happiest and smartest of us gets lonely and sad sometimes.

Through funny moments and witty dialogues, this book also reminded me that although we are mortals with just a limited time here on earth, death is what makes life worth living, and sadness is what makes happiness sweet.

Lastly, perhaps what I love most about this book is the cool ending. I wonder how I didn’t see that coming 😆 It was simply perfect 💖
