The Big Bad Mole is Coming

The Big Bad Mole is Coming

Written by Martin Waddell

The big bad mole is coming! Quick hide! Quite who the big bad mole is, or why he's so menacing is never really made clear in Martin Waddell's story of farmyard menace. Still, the narrator of the tale (a mischievous little boy) spreads enough panic to ensure that everyone takes refuge in the barn for the day. 

An odd book, didn't strike a chord with Charlotte at all which could be down to the sketchy illustrations by John Bendall Brunello - or just the fact that the story never seems to actually get anywhere. 

Charlotte's best bit: None

Daddy's favourite bit: Some of the sketchy pics were OK. Weird art style though.
