Get to know Mole, the underground protector of the garden, in this fact-filled natural history adventure with vibrant collage artwork from the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom .

Some might think that Mole is a garden pest, but the truth is, he is a pest-preventer! Mole keeps worms and caterpillars and other crawly bugs from munching up all the growing veggie plants. And so at harvest time, there is a bounty of yummy goodies for the gardeners to enjoy--and Mole is chubby from all the eating he has done and ready to get cozy in his burrow for winter.

Complete with a beautiful glossary identifying all of the different worms, caterpillars, moths, and butterflies included in the illustrations, this colorful gem from Caldecott Honoree Lois Ehlert is sure to delight nature lovers of all ages.

My daughter enjoyed this book, but it did not educate as I expected.

Colourful pictures done with torn paper are appealing, but kind of weird too. The text is also bizarre. This is supposed to inform about underground grubs and insects and a mole's life, but not successfully. I wouldn't choose this book to teach about moles or anything for that matter. .. and I usually enjoy Lois Ehlert, but one doesn't make sense to me.
