The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse

Loved by

I’m not exaggerating when I say this is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever come across. Not only is it visually stunning – it’s full of the most gorgeous illustrations and one that I have proudly displayed on my coffee table – but the message it contains is totally heartwarming (and needed) too.

I came across it when I was having a hard time with depression and was feeling a bit lost, and it helped me immensely.

Inside the pages are the stories of four unlikely friends (a boy, a cake-loving mole, a fox and a horse) who share their most pressing questions and important life lessons after stumbling upon each other whilst trying to find their way home.

It does such a wonderful job of reminding the reader about the power of strong friendships when you’re going through something challenging. It’s a book full of kindness and love, and I tuck into its pages at least once a week.

I gift it a few times a year, and I’ve yet to hear of a single person who it’s not helped. Whether you’re eight or eighty, there’s a story in here that will resonate. A bookshelf essential.

Some sage advice from the mole:

Do you have a favourite saying?”, asked the boy.
“Yes”, said the mole.
“What is it?”
“If at first, you don’t succeed, have some cake.”
“I see, does it work?”
“Every time.”
