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.
