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

Charlie Mackesy 01

With gorgeous illustrations, Charlie Mackesy gave us beautiful messages for the troubled souls through his kind and loving characters. Whether you’re eight or eighty, start from the beginning page or dip into anywhere, you will definitely enjoy this book at anytime.

The drawings are mainly of a boy, a mole, a fox and a horse. They boy is always curious with questions, the mole is obsessed with cake, the fox is silent most of the time, and the horse, the kindest. Like us, they all are different and each has their own weaknesses. In fact, we can see a little bit of ourselves in all four of them.

The book aptly touches on embracing one’s vulnerability and weakness. It reminds you to live courageously with more love and kindness for yourself and for others. A very much needed book right now. I’d rate 5 out of 5. .

For everyone—those staying or working at home, those essential workers supporting the community, and those those brave people fighting the Coronavirus at frontline—Charlie has been doing tiny reading of the book on his Instagram account @charliemackesy so do follow him for daily dose of vitamins for your soul.
