“Sometimes I worry you’ll all realise I’m ordinary,” said the boy.
“Love doesn’t need you to be extraordinary,” said the mole.

The intro is true to core that you can simply pick up this and start wherever you want to. This book is about a journey yet the pages can be read separately. Filled with beautiful sayings and kind words, this book is a much needed book, particularly at this moment.

“Asking for help isn’t giving up,” said the horse.
“It’s refusing to give up.”

-Charlie Mackesy, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse

The Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse is a book about friendship, self discovery and love. It tells us it’s okay to get help, that love is great and one deserves nothing less than to be loved. This book provides comfort and warm feelings. I’m glad that I got a chance to read it and I say, you should definitely try it too!

“Life is difficult- but you are loved.”

Just maybe, I wish the font could be simpler cause some words were harder to read. Other than that, I think the illustrations is gorgeous, the story is lovely and the message is powerful. I finished reading this in just 30 minutes and I’m already feeling so warm and fuzzy.

Overall, I’d highly recommend this book to readers who love cute illustrations and heartwarming quotes. This book will be the perfect read for you guys!
