Waterstones Says

A playful parody of the bestselling former Waterstones Book of the Year The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse follow the hilarious journey of a woman accompanied by an assortment of animals in a soul-searching quest for an open pub.

She was looking for wine. Instead she found friendship.

(Okay, it was with three animals, but she really hadn't drunk any wine at that point, promise.)

Come, dearest reader, and dive into this book. It's warm and safe in here, which you will have guessed already because it's about a human and three animals.

You might not be able to remember the animals or the order they fall within the title, but that doesn't matter. The pictures will remind you that the story is about a woman, a mink, a salmon and a donkey. COD, not salmon, sorry - it's a cod.

The woman is embarking on an important journey. She does not know her destination, but she knows what she'll find when she gets there: an open pub. It has been a long time since she has been in one due to a strange, sad region of yester-year called 'Lockdown'. On her travels she bumps into the mink, the cod and a donkey who inexplicably resembles Donald Trump, and together they discuss their most valued life lessons, such as the value of travel insurance, and why it's always important to wear breathable pants.
