I have been enjoying The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse, written and illustrated by Charlie Mackesy

His journey with the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse has consumed him. He lives in their world a lot of the time and has loved making the book.

He thinks  G. K. Chesterton sums it all up well: “At the back of our brains, so to speak, there was a forgotten blaze or burst of astonishment at our own existence. The object of the artistic and spiritual life was to dig for this submerged sunrise of wonder.”

I didn’t find an image of my favourite page in the book, his final musing:

“Home isn’t always a place, is it?”

Thanks, Charlie, for this wonderful book, and hopefully, for not suing me over the slide show.
