Moles are blind, so their costume parties are a bit different. They wear perfumes of different animals/characters instead of clothing costumes! Weasel sees her opportunity and tries to sneak into Wonder Mole’s party for a mole dinner. She is wearing the most convincing weasel costume, but will she get caught in the act? A fun and quirky tale that tests your senses and imagination.
A Note From the Publisher
A Junior Library Guild selection.
"This unlikely premise somehow works well, with a few hilarious plot twists and an overall droll sense of understated humor. Stylized illustrations in citrus and teal shades and an oversized format bring the mole party to life"- Kirkus Reviews

This is a funny book about moles and a mischievous weasel. It's cute with a unique illustration style. Good for some giggles with the little one.
Clever tale. A weasel sneaks into Wonder Moles party! Since the moles can't see, he thinks he's going to get a free mole meal! Kids learn all about scent and eyesight in moles in this fun little story. Illustrations were a hoot!
A silly little book for silly little children shouldn't be able to surprise and please as much as this – or so is the general thinking. This eventful drama, where practically blind moles have a party where everyone has come in the scent of an other animal, certainly packed in the twists and turns. And I think the surprises are strong and funny enough that this would cope with repeat reading, even once the plot has been discovered. At times the artwork was a little too wacky for me, but it gives the pages great energy, and the brief story comes across well. I have to strongly recommend this for the under-eights it's aimed at, for it certainly entertained me.
