There is nothing better than sitting down with a cuppa and getting engrossed in your favourite book.
One novel high on the nation’s list is The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse.
The text by Charlie Mackesy has been hailed a must read by customers to get through “turbulent times.”
The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse depicts the strong friendship between the four characters, and profound conversations they share with one another.
The tale touches on the need for close ties, compassion and love in a corrupt world, which is why it has struck a chord with readers, just months after it was published in October 2019.
The story is accompanied by a string of illustrations too, which have become very popular in their own right, so it is no wonder it has received the Waterstones Book Of The Year Award in 2019.
