Children's Literature

In this continuation of the stories in her earlier book, Why Mole Shouted and
Other Stories, Lore Segal presents four warm and appealing short tales about
Mole, his grandmother, and his friend Little Gopher. Mole, far from being the
perfect child, eats his cookies before he finishes his ants, tosses a ball in the
house, and snatches up a whole bag of pretzels at Grandmother's carefully-
planned picnic. But Mole's grandmother is a wise lady who knows exactly what
to do. Her patience is unlimited, as is her love. The book's short chapter-like tales
will attract newly-independent readers. The warm, cozy goings-on of the Mole
family will delight anyone who has ever wanted that extra chocolate chip cookie.
With illustrations sure to charm grown-up readers and tickle young listeners, and
a story that is irresistible, this cozy picture book is a winner for sure.
