 Mole - Charlie Mackesy

Since its publication in 2019, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy has brought joy to millions of readers  – adults and children – who fell in love with the four unlikely friends. In particular the Mole captivated hearts and imaginations and now there is a beautifully crafted mole for you to own.

Mole has a favourite saying: "If at first you don't succeed, have some cake." Apparently it works every time and the adorable little animal is also motivated by kindness. Perfect for a companion – even if only in a soft toy. Or perhaps especially so.

I love the feel and size of this beautiful creature and I'm sure it will become a beloved favourite with anyone lucky enough to own one. Mole comes complete with a carrying bag, both beautifully made to last for years of cuddles and love.

The animated version of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is still available to watch on iPlayer. It won Best Animated Short Film at the 95th Academy Awards and Best Short Animation at the 76th British Academy Film Awards.
