SKU: 9781804250457 Categories: , Tag:


This is a brilliant and creative rendition in Scots by Matthew Fitt of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy. Matthew has previously translated titles such as Harry Potter and Philosopher’s Stone and various Roald Dahl and David Walliams books into Scots. Charlie Mackesy’s beloved The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse has been adapted into an animated short film, coming to BBC One and iPlayer this Christmas.

This beautifully made hardback celebrates the work of over 100 animators across two years of production – with Charlie’s distinctive illustrations brought to life in full colour with hand-drawn traditional animation and accompanying hand-written script. A book of hope for uncertain times. ‘I made a film wi some friends about a laddie, a mowdie, a tod and a cuddie – their journey thegither and the laddie’s search for shame.

This is the buik o the film we made. I hope this buik gies ye smeddum and makes ye feel loved. Love Charlie’
