Overview


Full of fun, imagination, and quiet confidence, these are small creatures with big hearts. Their unfaltering optimism is contagious, bringing smiles to faces everywhere. Through the trees the Mole Sisters spy a fairy ring and quietly sneak up.Finding the area absent of fairies, the Mole Sisters begin to play dress-up, with flowers on their heads, wings, and magic wands. They look just like fairies! A sprinkle of magic dust and a lost of imagination lead to dizzying fun, until it is time to be Moles again. Bright and lush colored-pencil artwork conveys the Mole Sisters’ love for life. A minimum of text makes it easy to follow and invites preschoolers to join in with its rhythmic cadences.

Editorial Reviews

Norfolk Virginian-Pilot - Krys Stefansky
Very funny... deceptively simple, the sweet story captures the impulsiveness of childhood and the transporting effect of vivid imaginations... charming series.
Canadian Materials - Lisa O'Hara
Like the previous Mole Sisters stories, these star an optimistic pair of moles who will enchant both preschoolers and parents. The sisters' love for each other and their sense of adventure are a pleasure to encounter, and the childlike delight they take in everything is sure to be mirrored by the children enjoying the story. Aimed at the preschool crowd, these small books are meant to be read to one child rather than a class. The coloured pencil illustrations extend the minimal text found on each page and are sure to please everyone. The illustrations are full of movement, expression and fun and carry the story forward. Mole sisters fans be warned! The press release accompanying these books says that these are the final two adventures of the mole sisters. Highly Recommended.
Publishers Weekly
Roslyn Schwartz's beloved mole sisters return in two paperback picture books. In The Mole Sisters and the Fairy Ring, the siblings discover a deserted fairy ring in a forest and take time out to revel in a game of make-believe. The girls then explore a cave with prehistoric origins in The Mole Sisters and the Way Home. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Those silly, loveable sisters are at it again. While out and about they discover a fairy ring (an empty circle surrounded by toad stools). As they sneak through the grass, they hope to catch sight of some little sprites, but no luck. Not the least bit deterred the sister decide that they will be fairies. With flowers on their head and leaves around their waists they dance up a storm. A slight collision has them seeing stars and they decide to go back being moles. The story is amusing and the illustrations are a delight. The small format of these books makes them just right for little hands. Schwartz has created another story that will delight young listeners and readers. 2003, Annick Press, Ages 3 to 6.
