Critical Praise

“This engaging read-aloud…encourages children to be open to accepting and exploring different points of view. It also demonstrates how teamwork can benefit everyone…a must-have for all shelves.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

“Yaccarino highlights the power of kindness and daring to go against the grain in the story of a small, dapper mole who doesn’t fit in with his larger, burlier brothers...Yaccarino’s crisp, retro graphics exude energy and humor while emphasizing the rewards that can come with trusting one’s instincts.” — Publishers Weekly

“Yaccarino’s digital illustrations are bold and graphic, and they do an excellent job of contrasting the under- and aboveground worlds that Morris Mole traverses in his adventure of individuality and community.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The effective use of backgrounds…helps to signal key setting details for young listeners. A gentle reminder that thinking differently can have its rewards.” — Booklist
