Experience the world of a curious boy, a greedy mole, a wary fox and a wise horse who find themselves together, in sometimes difficult terrain, sharing their greatest fears and biggest discoveries about vulnerability, kindness, hope, friendship and love.

A book to treasure alongside the original blue edition, Charlie has drawn a new rainbow illustration to mark this particularly hard year. This edition contains a gold ribbon marker and is bound in green cloth.

‘When the dark clouds come… keep going.’
