Featured Book: The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse

Discussion Leader: Susanne Sullivan

With its message of empathy and self-care, artist Charlie Mackesy's quiet picture book has captured the shared longing of our troubled times.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a collection of loosely linked illustrations about a lonely boy who ambles through the countryside on a spring day, finding companionship: first meeting the mole, then the other animals of the title. As they walk, the new friends talk, wonder, share their hopes and fears and pose some big questions: “What do we do when our hearts hurt?” “Home isn’t always a place, is it?” The fox is generally silent; the mole and the horse offer reassurance and wisdom
