The whole series about Mole and Friend is so sweet and well written that I am not sure if it is me or my son who likes it the most!
Each book takes a child's concern or experience and contextualises it is a marvellous way. In this one, mole finds an icicle and thinks it a diamond, and after having struggled to carry it home he's baffled this find that it's melted away. It's with the help of his friends that he not only understands what happened, but also learns to appreciate the spectacle of icicles left where they are, as even in a child experience not everything can be taken and brought home to keep, but sometimes needs to be just enjoyed in the moment and remembered.
This was the last Mole story to add to our collection and is a popular choice with my children. Lovely book in great condition. Beautiful story which me and my daughter really enjoyed reading. We saw 'Bringing Down the Moon' by the same author, at the theatre in our town and thought it was such a lovely story that we wanted to see what else he had to offer. It's a sweet story, and the illustrations are lovely. My daughter loves this book.
This was billed as a nearly new book but was in perfect condition. My two year old granddaughter loves the Mole stories. Large paperback with 32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread. Beautifully illustrated throughout, by Vanessa Cabban, and this super book is further enhanced by meaningful expressions from the various creatures and descriptive text! Example of text:- ' Mole had never seen snow before.
It made the woodland look strange and beautiful. So Mole left his hole and set off to explore. It was SO quiet, as if everything had fallen under a magic spell. Mole wandered on, enchanted, until suddenly I wonder if you can guess what Mole finds and why he thinks it is so magical? The cover of this enchanting book sparkles silvery white as a friendly mole stands in the snow. Vanessa Cabban's illustrations are soft and appealing, and the woodland story has the same feeling of glitter overlying gentle quality.
Little Mole, slipping and slipping through a unfamiliar winter scene, finds a magical ice "diamond" in the snow. As he carries the wet and slippery treasure home, to his consternation the diamond disappears in his hands. With his woodland friend, he retraces his steps to the foot of the tree where he found it to see hundreds hanging from the branches.
There's a moment of sadness as Mole realizes his magic diamond was just an icicle but it is short-lived. As you turn the page there's a wondrous image of the wood transformed by the ice that captures the real beauty of snow on sunny day. It's a magical moment for the child listener. After taking more than a year to come up with the second Mole and Friends story, this third story came hot on its heels. The second book was set in springtime and although Vanessa had not started work on the illustrations at that point I had envisaged that it would be predominantly green.
However Vanessa is very skilled at working with a limited palette and has once again produced a set of wonderful illustrations. Mole is always chasing after the unattainable. The premise of this book is similar to that of Bringing Down the Moon , in that Mole becomes enamoured with a beautiful object, in this case an icicle. However in this instance, Mole attains the object of his desire — only to lose it again! At first he feels foolish, but eventually he understands that something as ephemeral as an icicle can still be precious.
I had a college friend, who was an overseas student from Malaysia. As we walked back from a lecture one afternoon, it began snowing heavily, something that I had mixed feelings about, as I knew it meant a treacherous walk across campus for the next couple of days.
However, my friend, who had never experienced a snowfall, was thrilled. I can still recall the look of child-like wonder on his face and the way that he spun around, whooping, with his arms outstretched trying to catch the falling flakes. But when he tries to take it home, the diamond disappears and his friends find him sad and empty handed.
Hedgehog, Squirrel and Rabbit are unconvinced by his story until Mole shows them where he found his treasure.
