Mole Music

by David McPhail

One Potato Review

McPhail is prolific as a writer and illustrator; there’s hardly anyone whose books are more recognizable. This is one of his best: the sweet and simple story of a mole who orders, learns and assiduously practices his violin for the private joy that it gives him, entirely regardless of the effects his music is having on the world where he cannot see it. With a tree as a microphone. For anyone who’s ever spent hours banging on instruments, and wondered where it was taking them.
