The mole sisters are looking something. They don’t know what they are looking for but that does not really matter for they will “know it when we see it.” Better still they are sure to have a splendid time looking for whatever it is and that is indeed what happens.

Together the two little creatures find a hole in the bottom of a tree. Inside the tree they find a grand looking staircase and when they climb the staircase they find themselves looking at a nest at the end of a branch. In the nest there is a little bird and being curious little creatures the two moles venture out across the branch to investigate the nest.

Anyone who has found an unexpected treasure while out on a ‘looking for’ expedition will instantly relate to the adventures of the delightful mole sisters. Quite often we find the best treasures of all when we simply come across them and this is what the mole sisters experience.

With warmth and a keen appreciation for the good things in life Roslyn Schwartz has once again created a little picture book which will give readers of all ages a great deal of pleasure. With attractive artwork to look at, a cunning little tale to follow, and a wise message to think about, this is winning title for all
