Description

The lovable Mole and his friends are back in a delightfully snug story that shows us there really is no place like home.

Mole thinks his burrow is small and dark and dull, so he sets off to find somewhere big and bright and beautiful instead. His friends Hedgehog, Squirrel, and Rabbit are full of ideas — a hollow log that's too big and drafty, an empty bird's nest that feels a bit dangerous, a nice niche beside a waterfall that's, well, a little too splashy. Finding a new home that suits him just right is not as simple as it seems!
