The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse — a book for all ages

Do you know The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse? It is a book for all ages — from eight to one hundred and eight. And it is a book full of hope and full of positivity. The perfect book for a gift, but also, as a treat for yourself. 

This is the perfect book to curl up on a Wintery night with (think Christmas holidays!) and enjoy reading as a family, fluffy duvet optional. We took it with us on our recent holiday to this Lighthouse Cottage, and on the first rainy day, we flopped on a comfy sofa, with the fire on and poured through the pages of this book.

This book from British illustrator, artist, and author Charlie Mackesy explores life’s universal lessons, featuring 100 colour and black-and-white drawings. And it will conjur up images of your favourite childhood classics, and perhaps remind you of the adventures of Christopher Robin, Pooh and friends. The illustrations capture the spirit of long carefree days and unplanned adventures. It is a book that brings light to any dark room. A book that is playful and sweet, allowing us to share our vulnerabilities by being open and honest. It is a book that will warm your heart.

We hope you buy The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse as a gift for someone this year that needs a little pick me up, a little hug, or a little smile. And if you need any Christmas inspiration, visit our wonderful gift guide here.
