Publisher's summary

Discover the universal tale of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse brought to life in audio by its author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy, with a beautiful music score and the real wildlife sounds of rural England.

“A surprise bestseller about kindness and vulnerability is bringing people together.” – Washington Post

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” asked the mole.

“Kind,” said the boy.

Charlie Mackesy offers inspiration and hope in uncertain times in this beautiful audiobook, following the tale 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. The shared adventures and important conversations between the four friends are full of life lessons that have connected with listeners of all ages.

“Charlie Mackesy’s mesmerizing debut combines the simplicity of “The Giving Tree”, magic of “The Velveteen Rabbit” and the curiosity of “Paddington” – Elisabeth Egan, New York Times
