Synopsis

Mole'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.
