      This is a really sweet story I love how mole becomes friends with perhaps one of the unlikely creatures above ground, the wolf and a wolf that had been being chased by the other animals too, as I think this show children in a gentle way that you should never judge people on their exterior, only their interior The illustrations in this are beautiful Bright and enticing.
