The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse (B&N Exclusive Edition)

by Charlie Mackesy

This is the story that wowed our booksellers. Charlie Mackesy’s luminous fable, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, is an inspirational (but not saccharine) story about loneliness and courage for readers of all ages. Read more in our blog.

"In the world we live in today, this book touches the heart and reminds us of who we want to be and the world we want to create for ourselves and others. The simple messages from a mole or compassionate words from a horse tells us that we don't need a complex answer when we are confused. Life is simple. We are the ones who make it so complicated. A beautiful book for the soul as well as the eyes." -- Glenda Moret, Bookseller, Brentwood, TN
