“We won’t stop digging until we find something spectacular,” Dave says to Sam. They dig their hole deeper—and even sideways—but they keep just missing what they’re looking for.

Why You'll Love It:
  •  There is a clever play between words and picture in which readers are in on a joke to which the characters are oblivious.
  • Klassen’s cross-section illustrations give readers a mole’s-eye view of the underground proceedings, extending the spare text with visual humor.
  • Barnett’s well-chosen words and plentiful white space support readers.
Who Should Read It:

Great for PreK-1st grade...and here's the book trailer:
