#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER USA TODAY BESTSELLER The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is not only a thought-provoking, discussion-worthy story, the book itself is an object of art. - The New York Times From the revered British illustrator, a modern fable for all ages that explores life's universal lessons, featuring 100 color and black-and-white drawings.

What do you want to be when you grow up? asked the mole.

Kind, said the boy.

Radiant with Mackesy's warmth and gentle wit, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse blends hand-written narrative with dozens of drawings, including some of his best-loved illustrations (including Help, which has been shared over one million times) and new, never-before-seen material. A modern classic in the vein of The Tao of Pooh, The Alchemist, and The Giving Tree, this charmingly designed keepsake will be treasured for generations to come.

Reviews for Boy the Mole the Fox and the Horse (GN)

The world that I long to inhabit is the one that Charlie Mackesy has created - a world of infinite kindness, wisdom, mutual care and tenderness, and true love between real friends. My prayer/hope is that our world will become more like this one. --Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic Simply, the world need's Charlie's work right now. --Miranda Hart Love, friendship, and kindness--this book speaks a universal language. --Bear Grylls A wonderful work of art and a wonderful window into the human heart --Richard Curtis A sweet tale rendered in swirly black calligraphy and watercolor. Childlike in its simplicity, its messages are universal. . . . Mackesy has brought people together. --The Washington Post A lonely boy ambles through the countryside on a spring day, finding companionship: first meeting the mole, then the other animals of the title. As they walk, the new friends talk, wonder, share their hopes and fears and pose some big questions. . . . A big hit. --The Philadelphia Inquirer A delightful treat of a book. . . . If there were classes on how to be a good person, this book would be the textbook. --Horse Nation The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is not only a thought-provoking, discussion-worthy story, the book itself is an object of art. --New York Times
