    (108)

    Mole is happy with his life until, one day, in the middle of spring-cleaning, he emerges from his hole at Mole End and starts meandering around the English countryside. Everything is new for the simple but stalwart Mole. Never before has he seen a river, taken a boat ride, or encountered the woods.

    Erin says: "A beautifully written children's classic"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend to a friend, but would encourage him/her to see for himself/herself. My problem with the narrator may be a matter of taste.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is marvelous, full of suddenly wonderful bits of poetry and funny moments.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I had a hard time with a trace of a southern US accent I heard in this narrator's voice, though she did a competent job when reading the dialogue in character. It is difficult to buy into this very British story read with this accent.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad that the accent is wrong for this particular book, as narrator is otherwise inventive and clearly talented.
