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

27 12 2019

I started to see this book everywhere late autumn this year as I started my Christmas shopping, then the illustrations started popping up all over social media, and really enjoyed them! The author’s instagram account has loads of pictures from the book and more, and I’ve put a couple of examples below.

I put it on my Christmas list, and my brother and his girlfriend got me a copy! I read it in one sitting on Christmas day, in maybe only 20min! It’s very illustration heavy, at most a sentence or two on each page, and the paper is quite thick, so it’s much shorter than it looks.

There is a very loose story going through it, but pretty much each page stands alone as it’s own thought, or even piece of art!

I really loved this, would recommend it! It’s the sort of thing you can probably read several times and get something different out of it each time.
