Same idea as A Home for a Bunny, and probably numerous other books. Still, it was cute and it's always a charming theme.
Warm illustrations are the backdrop for this sweet story of a mole who tires of his home and seeks a new one. Has the makings of a classic tale.

My son and I really enjoyed this simple story. Illustrations are lovely.
Super cute illustrations and nice story.
