. The Little Mole Who Knew it Was None of His Business is, quite simply, one of the funniest books you are ever likely to read (as long as you are not easily offended, that is!), with its unusual take on a natural bodily function combined with a simple tale of nature and discovery.
When the little mole of the title discovers a pile of, well, pooh, on his head, he is absolutely certain that it doesn't belong to him, but sets out on a mission to discover who exactly the culprit really is. His investigation takes him into the world of many animals, as he wanders and compares the pile on his head to the piles that animals leave behind them.
Outrageously funny, this cracking little book is an absolute delight and not only gives children the chance to talk about one of their favourite topics for discussion, but is also an intriguing way of introducing the idea of a nature trail, taking them on a trip that will leave them both laughing and learning.
Perfect for children,of course, but if you are stuck for gift ideas for the adults in your life you may need to look no further. --Susan Harrison
A scatological masterpiece. --The Guardian
Jamie Oliver's favourite bedtime story. --Metro
The Story of the Little Mole has been keeping poo obsessed children, and grown-ups, entertained for over a decade. Someone poos on a mole's head and he goes around all the animals seeing whether it comes from them, and learning about their poo in the process. Parents can always pretend it is just of scientific interest. --The Independent

The book was short, 11 pages in all. It's the story about how a mole got out of hole and someone laid a big poop on his head. So he goes off on a quest to figure out who pooped on him, in the process you learn how other animal's poop looks like, figuring out at the end who did it and taking a small revenge on them.
Get the book for the pictures because the dialogue is very repetitive, it's the reason why I gave it 3 stars rather than 5. Throughout 54% of the book this is the dialogue:
"Did you do this on my head?" he asked.
"Me? No, how could I? I do it like this!"
I think the book is funny, the pictures are great (they are illustrated as if with color pencils). It's a good short story, with laughter. It's worth getting, I think kids will laugh plenty.
SELLER - World of Books Ltd
I bought the "Used - Like New" from World of Books Ltd , cost me 0.01 pounds + shipping. I was so happy to see that the book was in excellent condition even though it had been used. The only marks were the corners, they were a tiny bit worn, but that's nothing a bit of transparent tape can't fix. I also got the book Operation Alphabet (The Ministry of Letters) from the same sellers , used too cost me 0.01 pounds + shipping, amazing condition. I will be buying from this seller.
The book is very funny and describes how a little mole identifies the naughty animal that did a poo on his head. If you are still unsure as to whether to buy this book, then it does have an educational value to it too as it describes the differing characteristics of animal poo, which may then (if you so wished) provide an interesting detective game for your children when you are next out walking in the countryside!
My daughters were in fits of laughter when I read this book to them and all their other books paled into insignificance as this was demanded over and over. Above all else, children's books should be fun and enjoyable for them - and this one certainly is!
If ones child enjoyed toilet humour (or even the adult who may be inclined to read said book), then I would say that it fulfilled it's job to a high standard.
SPOILER ALERT..... There is also a great twist at the end that even blows 'The Sixth Sense' out the water.
It is about animals and their poo, so some may not be fond of it, but a good book with amusing illustrations if you're ok with this type of humor.
