Product Description

Amazon Review

Age 3 and over

. 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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I first saw this book as a childless person while browsing for a gift for a friend's child. I pointed it out to my husband and we both agreed it was gross and no way if we ever had a child would we be buying this!
Then we had our son and received it as a gift. It sat on the bookshelf for two years because I was too embarrassed to give it away to a charity shop.
Then came potty training and my son developed a HUGE fear of pooing on the potty. Poo became a distressing issue for him.
One day I returned from a trip to the shops to find a happy, smiley toddler and an equally happy smiley Daddy who'd finally discovered the merits of the funny and gross little book about poo. It didn't cure our son overnight but very quickly poo had become something funny and therefore not scary any more.
To the lady who thought she might be missing something...you are; you're missing a potty training toddler with a fear of the world dropping out of their bottom! Once your little one begins to potty train it might all make a lot more sense. This is from someone who never thought her first review on Amazon would be on a disgusting little book aout poo.

I ordered this hardback edition as I read to groups of children and wanted something a bit sturdy. The hardback is sturdy enough ..... it is just very small about 6 inch by 4 inch. This is no good for groups who need to see the pictures as well. My suggestion is to buy the paperback as this is very big and you can see good pictures of poo!

Kids love this book! It is short, funny and has some good pictures. 5 stars for content. 0 stars for hardback size that was not described in the advert.

Because kids like poo. I'm sorry to be crass about it, but it's true. Children are at the stage when they are exploring the world and everything in it, and things that are disgusting to adults are particularly fascinating (especially to boys). I've read this to my class and it's sparked many fun discussions and loads of laughter, and they've asked for it again and again.

Hilarious, informative and fun to read. I have bought this book for nearly every child I know, and its been adored by all of them.
Little Mole wakes up one morning to find a poo on his head, we then follow him in his quest for tracking down the poo culprit. Along the way we discover all different kinds of animal poo along with their shape, size and sounds!
I would recommend this to anyone buying for children, or indeed immature adults!

My daughter and i laughed aloud while reading this book together, she even took it into school for the teacher to read to the class, they loved it to. I have told so many friends to buy this book, its well worth it for the time spent laughing with your children.

BOOK - Paperback version

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.

One of the funniest children's books ever written.
If you have a child aged 2 - 92 and they have a sense of humour (or you'd like them to develop one) then buy this book!!
How the illustrator manages to put so much expression into such a seemingly simply-drawn character beats me.
Naughty yet nice.
The mole is fab, long live the mole.

Our 3 year old boy thinks this is absolutely hilarious, and we had to read it every night for about 3 weeks straight.
A good story, which probably appeals more to the boys, well illustrated, and a great ending.
