As a Grandmother I can highly recommend Mortimer for ages 4 and up.
Mortimer is a mole who is curious about the world him from birth. Even though he tends to break all the rules, his world becomes far more than a hole in the ground. He tests his parent’s patience and his boundaries to learn and try new things. In doing so he makes friends and overcomes fear.
There are 39 pages with eleven short chapters. The chapters are titled, The Beginning, Ignorance, Curiosity, Big Paws, Mission, New Plan, To The surface, Despair, The Invention, Sharing and Dancing. There are eleven cute hand drawn illustrations.
Interesting story with good dialog to keep any young child, boy or girl interested.
A great bedtime read.
