This delightful, little illustrated book stole my heart! The Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy is a life-affirming tale about friendship, self-love, overcoming fear, kindness, and cake. It is not a traditional story with a normal beginning or end. It is presented as a series of beautiful drawings each with a small conversation between the characters of the boy, the mole, the fox, and the horse. Instead of normal typography, it is written in the author’s handwriting, which gives it more warmth.
The inspirational messages in this book are for all ages. The characters ask important questions that can lead to meaningful discussions. The words of wisdom are heart-felt and gentle and do not feel like gimmicky platitudes. This lovely book is one to cherish and to share!
I would love to share a copy of The Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse with one of my subscribers. Please comment below by Monday, February 8, 2021, to be entered into a drawing.
