What a gorgeous moment in illustrated literature. Every page is art, every word is the plain-talking sweet wisdom we crave. My best friend, who bought this for me, is definitely Mole. If at first you don't succeed, eat cake. Perfection.

Very quick lighthearted book. 
The perfect book to pick up when you feel down and need some warm words.

This is just one of those books that you can read slowly, flip through and look at the absolutely stunning illustrations anytime and anywhere. You can share it with your parents, grandparents, kids, friends-- dog.

It's basically a hug in book form.

One of my favorite pages:

"'Sometimes I feel lost" said the boy.
"Me too", said the mole,
"but we love you, and love brings you home."


4 stars.
