About the Book

Funny and fact-filled, MOLES is another installment in the SUPERPOWER FIELD GUIDES series by author Rachel Poliquin, featuring full-color illustrations by Nicholas John Frith that will engage readers with witty narration and fun visual elements, inspiring readers to dig deep and see the world, both above and below ground, with new eyes. 

Meet Rosalie, a common mole. The first thing you need to know about Rosalie is that she is shaped like a potato. Not a new potato, all cute and round, but a plain old lumpy potato. She may be small. She may be spongy. But never underestimate a mole.

I know what you’re thinking: moles are just squinty-eyed beasts that wreck your lawn.

You’re right! Those squinty eyes and mounds of dirt are proof that moles have superpowers. There is absolutely nothing common about the common mole.

Critical Praise

?"Exuberant....Readers will never again regard these 'bionic burrowers' as pests—or, at least, not as ordinary ones."—Booklist, STARRED review   "Following series opener Beavers (2018), another field guide and another nuanced look at an underappreciated species.... [C]ombining a bit of snark with a lot of information.... Pick up a copy." —Kirkus     —
