The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse

Rating: 4 out of 5.

A short and sweet book. With a heartwarming story and unpolished illustrations. It’s about a boy who starts alone and meets the mole, the fox, and the horse in the way. It’s about their friendship and the introspective feelings everyone encounters once in a while. It’s is not just a children’s book, it’s a book like ‘The Little Prince’ or ‘The Giving Tree’ that’s written for all ages. Whenever you re-read it, you find something new. This particular story is focused on self-introspection. In a ‘Explain to me like I am five’ way. It’s beautiful, in both illustrative and written means.

“What do you think is the biggest waste of time?”

“Comparing yourself to others”, said the mole.”
