Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Dug, also known as Dugless Moleson, wants to show that his family is just like any other. Grandma, in her electric wheelchair, may race Dug and his sister Dusty around the yard while their father is trying to paint the house, but couldn't the resulting mess happen to anyone? And wouldn't any mother run home to get her children's piggy banks and smash them on the grocery counter to get money to pay her bill? Hans de Beer illustrated this charming collection of tales about a family that is (not quite) just like any other. 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3First introduced in Meet the Molesons (North-South, 1994), this family of moles manages to turn a shopping trip, ice skating, painting the house, making bunk beds, and other ordinary events into mildly disastrous episodes. Unfortunately, the perspective and humor are likely to amuse adults more than children. The design of the book is adequate, and the amount of text and the size of the print indicate that it will appeal to beginning readers. The vocabulary, however, is more difficult than that in easy-to-read titles by Arnold Lobel, Else Minarik, and Syd Hoff. Full-color illustrations appear throughout, featuring cartoonlike moles that look more like gray pigs with pointed noses.Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
