Explorations in Sights and Sounds
In this children's explanatory tale, Fox persuades Mole to go to the moon on a braided grass rope. After Mole slips from the rope and is carried to earth on the back of a bird, he digs a tunnel, which explains why Mole chooses a nocturnal existence. The simplicity of the story, with its trickster characteristics of Fox, belies the actual experience of reading this visually stunning, bilingual, timeless tale.
