Publisher's Summary

Meet Mouse and Mole. They live together in a little cottage in the country. Mouse is practical and cheerful. Mole gets into scrapes and needs looking after. Their everyday adventures will appeal to adults and children alike, because the charm of the stories lie in the endearing friendship of the two central characters and the humour of their exchanges.

Join Mouse and Mole as they celebrate Christmas. There's presents, friends, fun in the snow, and that all important sing-along to remind us all of the true fun and value of Christmas Day.

Mouse and Mole first appeared as an award-winning series on BBC Television, and like 'The Wind in the Willows' and 'Winnie the Pooh' is justly recgnised as a classic of our time.

Mouse and Mole features three of Britain's best loved actors, Richard Briers, Alan Bennett and Imelda Staunton as the voices of Mouse and Mole and all the supporting characters.

What the Critics Say

"The two cohabiting animals are characters that stand alongside the greats of children's literature, Toad, Ratty and Winnie-the-Pooh. They work their magic not just on two to six-year- olds but on parents too, so perfectly judged is the humour and so perfectly paced the dialogue. In A Very Special Mouse and Mole, pondering on the number of pebbles in the world, Mouse discovers existentialism. "If there are so many pebbles, how can one pebble be important? And if there are so many mice, how can one mouse matter at all?" Forget Sophie's World, try Mouse and Mole." (Dinah Hall, The Sunday Telegraph )
"Alan Bennett and Richard Briers don the vocal fur and whiskers for this new series based on Joyce Dunbar's lovely Mouse and Mole books. Perfect stuff for small children." (Family Choice, the Daily Mail)

    Story
    "May need to be familiar with TV series ..."

    Thankfully I am very familiar with the voice of Richard Briers from the BBC series GOOD NEIGHBORS. There is no narrator in this tale and the casted dramatization of the tale requires the ability to follow the voices to keep track of who is doing what. I had a little bit of a hard time, occasionally, following the action.
    However, the tale will become part of my annual holiday entertainment -- just like I HAVE to watch the Charlie Brown Christmas, listen to or watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas, watch It's A Wonderful Life. (Anyone know where I can get a copy of Bernard and the Genie?)

    This is a fun little tale. About Christmas wishes, fears, party plans, Christmas guests, and being among friends. What could be better?

    Once I listen to this tale again, I will probably want to change my current ratings to higher ones. Right now they are at 3 because of how I got lost in following the action in a few spots. If I listen again, I'm sure I'll follow it better -- and while I know I won't be able to change my review, maybe I'll be able to up my star ratings ... :-)
