The Boy, The Mole…
Graduation Gift Idea

Charlie Mackesy has a special edition of The Boy, the mole, The Fox, and the Horse coming out just in time for graduation season.

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

“Kind,” said the boy.

I promised myself I wouldn’t cry as the day of my sons graduation draws near.  We have just 24 days left. Then this book came in the mail….(insert alllllll the Momma tears here). Let’s just say I didn’t make it.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse is going to make the perfect gift for every graduate this season, my own son included!  It was named Barne’s and Noble’s Book of the Year for good reason.  

One of the greatest freedoms is how we react to things

This new deluxe edition comes with special endpapers and a soft yellow spine.

In this book, British author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy explores life’s universal lessons, through 100 color and black-and-white drawings of a boy and his furry friends.

Sometimes I think you believe in me more than I do.” 

You’ll catch up.” 

The book offers inspiration and hope as the friends share their greatest fears and biggest discoveries about vulnerability, kindness, hope, friendship and love. The adventures and conversations between the four friends are full of life lessons that have connect with readers of all ages. 

This book encourages you to live courageously with more kindness for yourself and others, to ask for help when you need it, and be thankful for what you’ve got.  Go ahead and spread your wings and follow your dreams.

What’s your best discovery?

That I’m enough as I am.”
