The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the HorseFebruary 18, 2021
Just In, but really it should be, Just Back In, as we are once again fully stocked on the wildly popular and hugely successful Charlie Mackesy beyond charming book. I used the word charming but I could have used many other delightful words to describe this. It is filled with life lessons that are applicable at any age, so the book appeals to all ages. We have sold it as gifts to young kids as well as birthday gifts to folks turning 90. His drawing are spectacular and the messages attached heartfelt beyond measure. The book is an absolute treasure. And yes, I realize that rhymes, but that was not my intention but it did make me smile at this 5 a.m. hour. I spotted the book before it had actually been officially released when I was doing a big buy of titles on a buying day in the showrooms. I was instantly taken with it and knew it would do incredibly well as its appeal is so large—it would spend 62 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list, just recently dropping from #1 to #2.
