Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 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


"Appealing illustrations and great read-aloud text. It is just right for young children becoming more familiar with the world around them." Books for Keeps on "Bringing Down the Moon" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
My son and I just read this book together this morning. It was such a delightful read! Poor Mole is looking for a new home that will be big and bright and beautiful. As we follow him along his journey (and meet his enchanting animal friends) we discover that perhaps Mole already has just what he is looking for. This is a well-written, wonderfully illustrated story that affirms an old truth: There really is no place like home.
