A wonderful work of art and a wonderful window into the human heart--Richard Curtis

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

Simply, the world need's Charlie's work right now.--Miranda Hart

"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

"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

"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 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

"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
