April 2017 Picture Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month April 2017 | Morris Mole can’t find his glasses anywhere at the end of a long day at work. Luckily, he is sure he can find his way home without them. But can he? Poor Morris! He pops up in all kind of homes and surprises all kinds of families - rabbits, owls, penguins and, rather dangerously, crocodiles! At last he can smell Worm Noodles. Now he can find his way home. Young readers will enjoy Morris’s mistakes and they will particularly love knowing where his glasses are. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Mrs Mole, I'm Home! by Jarvis

The witty Jarvis makes all the right moves New York Times From Jarvis, the creator of Alan's Big, Scary Teeth, comes another truly unmissable, hilarious adventure about a daddy mole who has mislaid his spectacles.

Morris can't find them anywhere. So, he decides to go on without them, trusting his instincts to lead him the right way home to his waiting family and delicious dinner of worm noodles. Mrs Mole, I'm homeeee! he sings ...as he burrows right into some poor unsuspecting rabbit family's hole. Oh dear. Without his spectacles, Morris really can't see a single thing - how will he ever get home? With perfect comic timing and a whole lot of heart, Jarvis will have all readers rooting for Morris to find his family, and rejoicing in the idea that - glasses or no glasses - you can always make your way back to home sweet home.

Reviews
