Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-One morning, Mole decides that he is tired of living underground. He wants to live someplace that is "BIG and BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL instead." His friends, Hedgehog, Rabbit, and Squirrel, help him look for a new home, but he finds problems with each suggested location. In the end, Mole returns to his old home because it feels just right. Children will love these cozy characters, and Cabban's lush, grass-green watercolors are a perfect reflection of their world.-Kelley Rae Unger, Peabody Institute, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

PW said of Bringing Down the Moon, the book that first introduced winsome Mole, "In Emmett's unadorned, gentle prose, Mole seems enchanted by the moon's ethereal beauty." In No Place Like Home by Jonathan Emmett, illus. by Vanessa Cabban, the fellow wakes up dissatisfied with his burrow, wishing to live "somewhere big and bright and beautiful instead!"-until his search for the perfect home brings him right back where he started.
