Curious Eeny Mole emerges from her dark hole home to discover the world up above
Eeny Mole lives with her family at the bottom of a deep, dark hole. One day she discovers something wonderful Up Above. And she goes exploring.
“An endearing picture book … The beautifully worded text and strong but delicate illustrations create a charm all their own … Although Eeny first braved the Up Above in Yolen and Brown’s Eeny, Meeny, Miney Mole (2018), familiarity with the earlier book is not a prerequisite for enjoying this satisfying story of a little mole who bravely ventures forth and returns to tell the tale.”— - Booklist
“Like Spring … Brown’s soft illustrations echo Beatrix Potter’s in both delicacy and whimsy, and Yolen’s story of bravery justified should put a smile in readers’ hearts.”— - Kirkus Reviews
The amazingly prolific Jane Yolen, has been called “America’s Hans Christian Andersen.” She is the distinguished author of over 365 books, including Fairy Tale Feasts, Jewish Fairy Tale Feasts, Owl Moon and Devil’s Arithmetic. She lives on an old farm in western Massachusetts with numerous moles who do not seem to be afraid of anything. She enjoys taking walks along the river near her house and visiting people, including her editors—in fact, she wrote this book in the office of one of them.
Kathryn Brown has illustrated numerous highly-acclaimed picture books for children. She lives with her husband and their daughter near Jane Yolen in western Massachusetts. She did not, however, use the moles on Jane Yolen's farm as models for this book. (They were too hard to catch.)
