Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
The book's cover boasts a sticker that proclaims it "the number two bestseller." If the sticker doesn't tip you off, maybe the cover illustration of a mole sporting a dog turd on his head will clue you into the subject matter. The entire story revolves around the mole's quest to discover which animal has dropped the load. Each page reveals a different description of animal excrement until the exciting conclusion when mole uncovers the culprit and reciprocates by dropping a small package on the dog's head. I guess this book serves to tell children that they should do-do on others as others have do-doed on them.

    Superb

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I loved it when I was little, and years later I pulled it out to read it again, and it still amused me. I brought it into my creative writing class and read it aloud for them, and the entire class "eww"d and laughed as well. A definite hit.

    This book is

    This book is really cute. I baught this book for my son,( when he was potty training, at 2 and a half). I thought that it would be a neat book for that, and it was. He's six now and still enjoys it from time to time, he even shares the story with his friends and they love it just as he does.

    When your child won't stop saying 'poop'

    When my children started to find it funny to say 'poop' every now and then, somebody told me to read them the story of the little mole. So we sat, read and talked a lot about what happened to the little mole... it helped them to overcome that phase and every time I feel its coming back, we take out that book !
