Editorial Reviews

Review

"Love, friendship, and kindness--this book speaks a universal language." -- Bear Grylls

“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

"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

"I felt this book down to my core." -- Hoda Kotb

“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

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, love-affirming book
By bradleybirthmom on October 24, 2019
The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a beautiful, heartfelt book filled with characters each of us can relate to in some fashion. The conversations held between the Boy, and the friends he finds along the way, are a reflection of truths many of us have forgotten -- how to be gentle to ourselves and others. How to love without limit. How to walk with the ones we love, through all that life brings.

As an aside, the evening we came home and found this book on our doorstep my severely dyslexic daughter slowly began looking at the illustrations, then took the book from my hands and started working hard to read -- really read -- the messages on each page. What a gift, not only to see her doing her best to make out words, but also to see her eyes light up as she took in the messages Charlie has authored. We all matter, we're all in this together, we can all love one another, despite our differences.

I will be buying this book for all our loved ones this Christmas and I can't wait for my family journey with The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse = Bliss!
By Jamie on October 22, 2019
Charlie Mackesy's book is pure joy!! I read through it the day it arrived & I can already tell I will reread it over & over . . . hopefully, a few of those times will be with tea & cake. 😉
While reading it, I go back & forth between wanting to be still & sit in the quiet and wanting to get my sketch book & create in a flurry with pen & paint!! Love this book SO many . . . it's bound to be a classic for both children & adults alike not only for his artistic ability; but because he writes truth that every heart knows but that we have all too often forgotten!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 14, 2019
Honestly the most inspirational book I have ever owned, makes me want to paint (hence the photo 😆) makes me want to bake cake 🍰 Makes me grateful to have a glass 💕 It is a book I am buying for my 73yr old mum, 9 yr old nieces and a few friends for Christmas too.. it's really for all age groups. I read it in 30 minutes but I will forever dip into it. Charlies art and words are a light we all need in our lives. Thank you Charlie!

More than a book, a message, a companion to help me through all it is to be a living being in this life.
Thank you Charlie for this gift you have given us all...

Just to add that the corner of the book arrived damaged (photo) which was an initial disappointment until I realised the book needed cherishing more because of that!
(But dont like to think of this having happened on a wider scale...
