Experience the world of a curious boy, a greedy mole, a wary fox and a wise horse who find themselves together in sometimes difficult terrain, sharing their greatest fears and biggest discoveries about vulnerability, kindness, hope, friendship and love. Charlie's words and illustrations have brought comfort to many and have been shared online by readers around the world, as well as on t-shirts for Comic Relief, on magazine covers, on street lampposts in lockdown, in school classrooms, local cafes, and hospital ward walls.
They've even been used as screensavers for NHS hospital computers in difficult times. The shared adventures and important conversations between the four friends are full of life lessons that have connected with readers of all ages.
Enjoy the journey of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse brought to life in audio by its author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy, and beautifully underscored by the works of globally-renowned classical musician, Max Richter and award-winning composer Isobel Waller-Bridge. Narrated by the author.
