Torben Kulhmann's stunningly illustrated, nearly wordless tale offers a fascinating window into an imaginary, yet hauntingly familiar world under our feet, where a mole suddenly recognizes the precarious balance between progress and preservation. Kulhmann's open ended text encourages thoughtful exploration into possible solutions, and his delightful endpapers depict a montage of solutions that could very well save the moles' world and ours.
*Starred Review: "Kuhlmann s meticulous, precise illustrations are the star of this nearly wordless book, and each realistic spread of expanding modernization reveals an enormous amount of detail and evokes deep emotion. A poignant picture book with an unmistakable message and gorgeous, mesmerizing artwork."- Sarah Hunter, Booklist"
