Editorial Reviews

Kindergarten-Grade 2-The creator of the acclaimed Moon Rope (Harcourt, 1992) has taken a fragment of a Seneca tale and provided gorgeous, full-page illustrations to accompany her simple text. Fox, Skunk, and Raccoon order Mole to move because her mound of dirt blocks their path to the pond. Clever Mole spends the summer building up and beautifying the hill above her underground network of tunnels, and by fall it is too large to move. Instead, Fox asks her to dig a tunnel through it, which, of course, she is happy to do. Ehlert's collages, inspired by the Woodland Indians' traditional arts of ribbon applique and beadwork, are bold; graphically striking; and rich in form, shape, and color. Perfect for young children, this is an admirable marriage of text and art.Cyrisse Jaffee, formerly at Newton Public Schools, MA
