The Book

Mouse and Mole are two best friends who enjoy living life together.  

The book is composed of three charming tales that are perfect for grades 2 and 3.  There is quite a lot of text on each page which I'm sure that age group can handle no problem.  

The illustrations are vintage style and reminiscent of those found in Beatrix Potter books which I love.   They are full of amazing detail,  have a warm inviting colour pallet and  lots of  humour.  Kids will love each new antic that Mole creates: like picking the first Spring daffodil or mismanaging the trimmig of his lopsided whiskers.  Oh my... whatever has he done?  Thank goodness his friend Mouse is always there to support and encourage him as things never go as planned.  

The themes running throughout the book are:  friendship, imagination, and fun surprises.  This would be a delightful bedtime...or anytime story and a great addition to a classroom and school library.  I highly recommend it.
