Weekend Reads: “The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This beautiful little book, with its charming sketches and hand-written story, would be delightful reading for anyone from age 8 to age 80.
I was unaware of this volume until a friend shared on Facebook that she had received it, and showed a photo of one of the interior pages. I was so moved by that brief glimpse that I immediately ordered my own copy. While I could have consumed its gentle philosophy in a single sitting, I read it slowly so that I could savor it.
The Boy makes friends with Mole, Fox, and Horse in the course of his travels and learns something important from each of them. The book is both physically and psychologically beautiful. I suspect it will be one that I open to a random page for solace and advice for a long time to come.
