Mole is having a bad day-all of his clothes have embarrassing moth holes. He and Mouse decide to go shopping, first stopping for a quick lunch. Beginning readers will be amused and disgusted by Mole's favorite meal, a big serving of lightly fried worms. Finding new duds is challenging because Mole really prefers his old comfortable clothes. Then he finds a shirt he likes and fixes its missing buttons by sewing on acorn caps for a creative solution. In other stories, the two friends go fishing and make a surprising catch, and Mouse surprises Mole with her fix for his moth-eaten garments. With more challenging vocabulary than Arnold Lobel's "Frog and Toad" series (HarperCollins), this third book about these two pals is best suited for newly independent readers who are ready to tackle words like "double," "squeaked," and "shooed." But words like "abracadabra" and "cashier" may cause them to stumble. The stories are light, with simple plots, and the lively and expressive watercolor illustrations add energy and detail. A worthwhile addition to easy-reader collections.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME (School Library Journal ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When Mouse came to the door, he was in a bad, bad mood and scared her when he was yelling at those "pesky moths." They decided that going out to eat would make him feel better, but not before he tied a scarf around his holey pants. Lightly fried worms would be just the ticket. Yum, yum! After that they decided to shop, but Mole was a dull duck and "he looked out of place." He was no fashion plate for sure. Later they went fishing and no luck there . . . Mole was even scared half to death by an old tire. Mouse and Mole each had an idea about how to make their brand-new day into a great-new day. A little ingenuity goes a long way and they would surprise each other!
This book and its illustrations were not only charming, but it was also a very humorous book. The reader will start to giggle when he or she sees Mole scramble to cover up the hole in his pants. The beautiful illustrations make this a visual treat that will assist the first time chapter book reader understand and enjoy the plot. Hey, I think you'll love this book, but as Mole says, "Hay is for horses!" Your youngster will love it!
Great pictures and good stories, but a bit wordy at times. There are a lot of pictures, though, so your children's attention probably won't get lost and the text is not highbrow, so the book should make for a few good reads with the young ones.
