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.
