'Sometimes magic is found in the most unexpected places...' says author Jonathan Emmett.

Large paperback with 32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, by Vanessa Cabban, and this super book is further enhanced by meaningful expressions from the various creatures and descriptive text!

Example of text:-

'....."COLD-diggerty!" gasped Mole, as he burrowed out of the ground one afternoon.
"Whatever's this?"
It was the middle of winter and the woodland was covered in a thick blanket of snow.
Mole had never seen snow before. It made the woodland look strange and beautiful.
So Mole left his hole and set off to explore.
It was SO quiet, as if everything had fallen under a magic spell.
Mole wandered on, enchanted, until suddenly......'

Later in the story, Mole is joined by his friends, Hedgehog, Squirrel and Rabbit who are concerned to know why he is sad, but are gently philosophical, too!
I wonder if you can guess what Mole finds and why he thinks it is so magical?

The cover of this enchanting book sparkles silvery white as a friendly mole stands in the snow. Vanessa Cabban's illustrations are soft and appealing, and the woodland story has the same feeling of glitter overlying gentle quality. Little Mole, slipping and slipping through a unfamiliar winter scene, finds a magical ice "diamond" in the snow. As he carries the wet and slippery treasure home, to his consternation the diamond disappears in his hands. With his woodland friend, he retraces his steps to the foot of the tree where he found it to see hundreds hanging from the branches. There's a moment of sadness as Mole realizes his magic diamond was just an icicle but it is short-lived. As you turn the page there's a wondrous image of the wood transformed by the ice that captures the real beauty of snow on sunny day. It's a magical moment for the child listener.

We saw 'Bringing Down the Moon' by the same author, at the theatre in our town and thought it was such a lovely story that we wanted to see what else he had to offer. It's a sweet story, and the illustrations are lovely. My daughter loves this book
