Kid Lit: A Friend for Mole

I received this book for free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


A Friend for Mole by Nancy Armo

To be published on March 1, 2016.

Goodreads Summary:
An accidental encounter throws Mole and Wolf together. One is afraid of the light, the other is afraid of the dark. Together they learn that friends are all they need to conquer their fears.

My Thoughts:
Armo has written a cute book about friendship, kindness, and conquering our fears. Mole is happy living in his hole underground until he hears a lot of noise from above and decides to investigate. He is overwhelmed by the brightness and cannot find his hole. He ends up hiding in a bush and falling asleep until night time. In the dark he encounters a young wolf cub who is also lost. The two become friends, keep each other company through the night, and help each other in the morning.

This story will appeal to children whether they're animal lovers or not. The honest description of their fears is something anyone can latch on to. The illustrations are fun and add to the story. I enjoyed this book.

My Rating: 3 Stars

  1. Just from the cover I can bet the illustrations are adorable. Cute story of animals that aren't usually main characters in a story.

    1. Yes. The illustrations were very cute. And I agree these animals were a welcomed change from the normal character animals.
