The lovable Mole returns in his fourth adventure.
It's cold and blustery outside, and the best place for Mole to be is underground in his burrow. But it's been a long time since he's seen his friend Rabbit, so he tunnels through the ground to see her, meeting his friends Squirrel and Hedgehog along the way. When they find Rabbit under the weather with a terrible cold, Squirrel and Hedgehog give their friend gifts. Mole worries that he has nothing to offer, until Rabbit points out that he has brought her the very best gift of all his friendship.
