Wishmoley and the Little Piece of Sky
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 11:53 AM Labels: Julia Hubery, Mary McQuinlan, Scholastic Books, Wishmoley and the little piece of sky
A bittersweet little story of a Mole's wonderment at what lies "up there" above the clods of earth. Wishmoley's trip to the outside world sees him bringing back "a little piece of sky" that turns out to be something completely different and unexpected.
Gorgeous illustrations accompany a tear-jerking tale of how important it is sometimes to come to terms with letting something go that you've nurtured and loved. Have a box of tissues handy.
Charlotte's best bit: The various underground dwellers and their cool little tunnels and homes
Daddy's favourite bit: The rather sad but very sweet ending. Awww.
