Alain de Botton has performed a stunning feat: He has transformed arcane philosophy into something accessible and entertaining, useful and kind. Drawing on the work of six of the world's most brilliant thinkers, de Botton has arranged a panoply of wisdom to guide us through our most common problems.

This book tells great stories about some great philosophers and their struggles. I did indeed find it consoling, but also highly engaging. I found the authors voice to be relatable.

  • The Mysterious Howling

Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: “They must have been raised by wolves.” The Incorrigible children actually were. Discovered in the forests of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children: Alexander keeps his siblings in line with gentle nips; Cassiopeia has a bark that is (usually) worse than her bite; and Beowulf is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels.

My kid is obsessed with Wolves and loves stories about them. This story is about wolf children so it appeals to her. She also enjoys British narrators like the one in this story. The story is not to scary, which can be a problem for a sensitive child.
