My Review
The Secret Life of Moles is a super cute & adorable children's book about what those little underground critters (and their friends) get up to when no one is looking. 
The illustrations are great, and the story is easy to read. My 4-year-old son enjoyed listening to me tell him the story of the Teasels, the family of moles mentioned in the book.
Ragwort, the youngest mole, is the main character who goes on an adventure to find a newer, bigger area to move to so his family's current home isn't so crowded. What he discovers is a field that will be perfect. Unfortunately, it's not as perfect as it seems because of the very cross Hbean (human) who doesn't appreciate the moles digging up the field.  Does Ragwort ever get to move to his perfect home? You'll have to read it and find out!
I'm rating the story 5 stars. It's so fun, and definitely a book kids (and adults) of all ages will enjoy diving into.
