The talented author illustrator of Lindbergh The Tale of a Flying Mouse, returns iwth another illustrated tour de force.
Torben Kulhmann’s stunningly illustrated, nearly wordless tale offers a fascinating window into an imaginary, yet hauntingly familiar word under our feet, where a mole suddenly recognizes the precarious balance between progress and preservation. Kulhmann’s open ended text encourages thoughtful exploration into possible solutions, and his delightful endpapers depict a montage of solutions that could very well save the moles’ world and ours.

I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The illustrations were beautiful and very compelling. I did found it a little strange that there were not many words, most of the story was told by the pictures. It was a simple message, that expanding and surviving can kill the earth and it’s not always the best option, it can destroy what’s true.

It was a nice simple book.

3 out of 5 stars
