The book: A lovely signed First Edition of the 'Animated Story' edition of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.
The Boy is lost in the winter wilderness, where he meets the friendly Mole, who offers to help him find his way. The Boy is searching for a home, which he's never had before. While exploring the wilderness, they encounter a river, and decide to follow it until they find a village. They are then hunted by a hungry Fox, but are able to hide in a tree until the Fox leaves. After hearing it in distress, however, they search and find the Fox tied to a trap. The Fox threatens the Mole, but the Mole kindheartedly frees the Fox, who departs in shame. The next morning, the two head back to the river, but the Mole accidentally falls into it and is swept away. The Fox chases after the Mole, and though the Boy fears for his friend's life, the Fox rescues and saves the Mole instead. The Boy and the Mole continue on the journey, with the Fox following them at a distance.
Eventually, they encounter the Horse, who is an outcast from the rest of his kind. The group all become friends and explore the themes of humanity, empathy, and kindness. The Boy later sees village lights, and hopes that he is close to finding a home, but he loses sight of the village in the daytime. The Horse reveals that he is actually a pegasus, which incited jealousy from the other horses, but his friends accept him for who he is. The group fly together on the Horse's back until they can relocate the village. The group say their goodbyes to the Boy, but he decides to not go to the village, declaring that home is wherever loved ones are. The friends stick together and look up at the stars.
