SynopsisMole's Sunrise by Jeanne Willis
Mole had never seen the sunrise. 'I'd love to see it', he said. When his good friends, Vole, Rabbit, Squirrel and Sparrow take him down to the lake to show him the sunrise, their vivid descriptions help him to see it in his mind and he is able to imagine the rising sun and experience its beauty for himself.

As well as cats, rabbits, hamsters, dogs, fish and rats, she has owned a garter snake called Betty, a 25 years old smooth-clawed toad called Dave, an axolotl, newts, locusts and some giant hissing stick insects. She was once thrown out of her religious studies class at school by the Reverend Brown for writing rude poems.
