Mackesy narrates own audiobook for PRH

Charlie Mackesy will narrate the audiobook of his bestseller The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse, with a musical score and real wildlife sounds helping bring it to life.

Penguin Random House is releasing the edition on 12th November 2020 in physical CD and digital download ahead of World Kindness Day on 13th November.

The book, which tells the story of a curious boy, a greedy mole, a wary fox and a wise horse who find themselves together in sometimes difficult terrain, has been a huge hit since its release, selling 797,080 copies for £9.8m through Nielsen BookScan's UK Total Consumer Market. 

Mackesy said: “I recorded the audiobook in an old barn in Suffolk in a cave of cushions. Often being interrupted by pigeons, Barney the Dachsund snoring, and bees around the microphone. I drank a lot of tea and ate a lot of cake. I really hope you enjoy it.”
