The Little Mole who knew it was none of his business

The Story of the Little Mole who knew it was None Of His Business

Written by Werner Holzwarth
Illustrated by Wolf Erlbruch

Published by Chrysalis Children's Books

Oh dear. Poo. It was never going to go down well with Mrs Peej but for a toddler there are few things in life more amusing than poo. People pooing but in particular animals pooing so it's good (bad?) that this book is chock-full of just about every type of animal poo you can think of. It's a tightly woven tale of revenge in the face of adversity. Our little mole hero strives to find out just who did a rather nasty curly one on his head, with hilarious consequences. 

Not exactly one for the weak stomached though and certainly not one for prissy parents. 

Charlotte's best bit: Horse poo. 

Daddy's favourite bit: The sweet revenge exacted by the mole on the wrongdoer.
