The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a small graphic novel of images with conversations, over a picture landscape. It is a beautiful 30-minute read, a story of hope and optimism.
This story is for everyone whether you are age 5 or 85. It is about a curious boy, a greedy mole, a wary fox and a wise horse who find themselves together in sometimes difficult terrain. They share their greatest fears and biggest discoveries about vulnerability, kindness, hope, friendship, and love.
“Most old moles I know wish they had listened less to their fears and more to their dream,” said the mole to the boy. “Imagine how we would be if we were less afraid.”
“Is your glass half empty or half full?” said the mole. “I think I am grateful to have a glass,” said the boy.
Recommended by Sarah Mace, State Parent Program Manager. “This book might just inspire you to live more courageously with kindness for yourself and for others. It is a well of insights and sage wisdom wrapped up in an endearing story.”
