The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy
Everybody was talking about The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy, so I had to find out why and bought myself a copy. What a unique book!
The author, by training is an artist and you will read the book in under and hour, but you will keep reading it for ever. The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse takes you on a journey of discovery of the characters and yourself. Take the journey with the four unlikely friends and discover their story and their most important life lessons.
The conversations of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse have been shared thousands of times online, recreated in school art classes, hung on hospital walls and turned into tattoos. In Charlie’s first book, you will find his most-loved illustrations and some new ones too.
I don’t care if you are nine or ninety, this is a beautiful, thought provoking book. I will treasure my copy, so I highly recommend you buy your own.
