The Mole Sisters Series


by Roslyn Schwartz

The Year’s Best List, Resource Links

Full of fun, imagination, and quiet confidence, these are small creatures with big hearts. Their unfaltering optimism is contagious, bringing smiles to faces everywhere.

Through the trees the Mole Sisters spy a fairy ring and quietly sneak up.Finding the area absent of fairies, the Mole Sisters begin to play dress-up, with flowers on their heads, wings, and magic wands. They look just like fairies! A sprinkle of magic dust and a lost of imagination lead to dizzying fun, until it is time to be Moles again.

Bright and lush colored-pencil artwork conveys the Mole Sisters’ love for life. A minimum of text makes it easy to follow and invites preschoolers to join in with its rhythmic cadences.
