Synopsis

The Best Gift of All by Jonathan Emmett

This is a charming animal story about the wonderful gift of friendship. It's autumn, and the weather is so awful that Mole hasn't been able to visit Rabbit for days. He's just beginning to worry about her, when suddenly he thinks of a clever plan. He doesn't have to go out in the rain at all - he can dig a tunnel! With his friends Squirrel and Hedgehog behind him, Mole digs his way into Rabbit's burrow and finds her in bed with a terrible cold. Hedgehog and Squirrel dash off to get presents for her, but Mole has already brought her the best gift of all - he's brought her friends.
