The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a beautiful, heartfelt book filled with characters each of us can relate to in some fashion. The conversations held between the Boy, and the friends he finds along the way, are a reflection of truths many of us have forgotten -- how to be gentle to ourselves and others. How to love without limit. How to walk with the ones we love, through all that life brings.
As an aside, the evening we came home and found this book on our doorstep my severely dyslexic daughter slowly began looking at the illustrations, then took the book from my hands and started working hard to read -- really read -- the messages on each page. What a gift, not only to see her doing her best to make out words, but also to see her eyes light up as she took in the messages Charlie has authored. We all matter, we're all in this together, we can all love one another, despite our differences.
I will be buying this book for all our loved ones this Christmas and I can't wait for my family journey with The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.
