Still one of my favorites. Never tucked away with the forgotten books, always within arms reach.

This was quite a cute picture book about a lonely mole who wants a friend and the chance happenings that bring them together. I loved the illustrations and the word choice. I will be using this for a storytime on wishes this week and I'll see how it goes. It's long enough that it should be used for the K-3 crowd.

Mordant the mole wishes to see a cloud shaped like a turtle become a REAL turtle, so he blows on a dandelion and makes a wish...and sets off a chain of events that moves from various people/creatures to various events until circling right back to Mordant. Very sweet book.

Mordent's wish takes you around into town and around the block and back again. Beautiful illustrations and simple rhymes make this a full circle story.
