The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse: The Animated Story

4.81 (84 ratings by Goodreads)


By (author): Charlie Mackesy

The companion book to the BAFTA and Oscar winning animated short film.

A journey, in search of home...

This beautifully made hardback celebrates the work of over 100 animators across two years of production - with Charlie's distinctive illustrations brought to life in full colour with hand-drawn traditional animation and accompanying hand-written script.

I made a film with some friends about a boy, a mole, a fox and a horse - their journey together and the boy's search for home. I hope this book gives you courage and makes you feel loved. Love Charlie x
