One morning Morris the mole pokes his nose out of his hole and he discovers that spring has arrived. For Morris spring is a time for love, so he trots off to “find someone to love.” Morris has very bad eyesight, but he is sure that he will find the right animal to love because he knows exactly what to look for.

Unfortunately, though he knows that he needs to find someone with “luscious shiny black fur,” a “pretty pink nose,” and “gorgeous big wide feet,” Morris does not have much luck finding the right someone.

This charming, funny, and touching little book will delight children who like animals. With lovely multimedia artwork and a surprising ending, this is a perfect book to share with young children
