Little Mole proves it’s worth digging for your dreams
A little mole sets out to dig the biggest hole ever in an attempt to follow her dreams and prove how special she is. Things don’t go well. First, she crashes through a fox’s ceiling, then she spoils a hedgehog’s lawn, before causing a young rabbit to lose his kite. But with encouragement from a friendly otter, Little Mole carries on digging and suddenly, unexpectedly, and against all the odds, she makes everything right. It turns out her very special talent is helping her friends. It’s a lovely message, and one that will resonate in particular with young children who feel unspecial or just a bit lost. The illustrations are warm and full of fun, especially the cross-section scenes which let us follow Little Mole’s tunnelling across two pages!
Dream big, Little Mole, be brilliant, be YOU ...
Join one little mole as she follows her dream of building the biggest hole ever, and learns along the way that everyone has something special to give the world - it just sometimes takes a little time (and a few mishaps!) to discover what that special something is.
A powerful celebration of embracing who you are and finding your own unique talent from Tom Percival, the creator of Ruby's Worry. With charming illustrations by Christine Pym.
