匯集在網路上被瘋狂轉載的、掛在醫院牆壁上的，甚至被作為刺青圖案的那些觸動人心之作，加上Charlie Mackesy未公開新作，這位療癒畫手的出道作品，將為這個不安的年代，帶來一絲光明。《享受吧！一個人的旅行》作者伊莉莎白．吉兒伯特這樣說：「我必須存在的，是眼前這個世界；然而我真正想存在的，是Charlie Mackesy所創造的那個世界。」（文/博客來編譯）
From the revered British illustrator, a modern fable for all ages that explores life’s universal lessons, featuring 100 color and black-and-white drawings.
A reminder of the most important things in life. A book of hope for uncertain times.
“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 book based on his famous quartet of characters. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse explores their unlikely friendship and the poignant, universal lessons they learn together.
Radiant with Mackesy’s warmth and gentle wit, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse blends hand-written narrative with dozens of drawings, including some of his best-loved illustrations (including “Help,” which has been shared over one million times) and new, never-before-seen material. A modern classic in the vein of The Tao of Pooh, The Alchemist, and The Giving Tree, this charmingly designed keepsake will be treasured for generations to come.
