The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse: The Animated Story by Charlie Mackesy


Charlie Mackesy's beloved The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse has been adapted into an animated short film, coming to BBCOne and iPlayer this Christmas.

This beautifully made hardback celebrates the work of over 100 animators across two years of production - with Charlie's distinctive illustrations brought to life in full colour with hand-drawn traditional animation and accompanying hand-written script.

""I made a film with some friends about a boy, a mole, a fox and a horse - their journey together and the boy's search for home. I hope this book gives you courage and makes you feel loved."" Love Charlie x

A reminder of the most important things in life. A book of hope for uncertain times. Enter the world of Charlie’s four unlikely friends, discover their story and their most poignant life lessons. Charlie’s first book includes his most-loved illustrations and new ones too. The conversations of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse have been shared thousands of times online, recreated in school art classes, hung on hospital walls and turned into tattoos.


'Charlie Mackesy's mesmerizing debut combines the simplicity of 'The Giving Tree', magic of 'The Velveteen Rabbit' and the curiosity of 'Paddington''  The New York Times

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

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

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

'The world that I am required to inhabit is this one. But the world that I long to inhabit is the one that Charlie Mackesy has created.' Elizabeth Gilbert
