Kindergarten-Grade 2. Mordant the Mole looks at a turtle-shaped cloud and makes a wish that the turtle were real so that he could be his friend. In a chain of awkwardly connected events, the wish comes true. Wispy, gouache illustrations follow the actions of Calum, a bicycle rider; Velma, a snow-cone seller; Peanut, a bird; Mr. Ricardo, a barber; Blanche, a beetle; Petunia May, a girl, and her friends; and, finally, a real turtle who makes his way to Mordant's house on the hill. The choppy text occasionally rhymes, but never flows. The author attempts to create a flight of fancy; unfortunately, it never gets off the ground.?Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
