I found this online before it was published and I loved it, was excited to see it make it into print. Now I keep it on my shelf, which I don't with a whole lot of books - not enough room.
The sentimental will love this book with its lyrical prose, extended use of metaphor, and message of the binding power of love. It was a bit too flowery for my taste, the author needn't have explained the mole's growth at each stage (it was pretty obvious), and children would get completely lost in the figurative language, I believe, but I'm sure this book has an audience of adults who will devour it, probably the same ones who adore Robert Munsch's Love You Forever.
Interesting ... I read it in the tub ... a fairy fale fable type love story about a mole looking for his true love, the owl, who has gone missing.

A fabulous quick-read about the power of love. The power to change people and to accept others though different.
