Synopsis

Mole was an ordinary mole. His burrow wasn't anything special, and his job was the usual for a mole: digging, tunneling, moving a little earth from here to there. But he had a loving molewife and a little babymole at home and he was very happy.

Then one day the unthinkable happened. Dragons attacked the tallest molehills in the forest. Hundreds of moles ran in terror as the molehills collapsed. Mole ran, too, but then he stopped. He looked at his paws and down at his feet, with claws meant for digging. There was a job that needed to be done, and he could help.

Inspired by the events of September 11, 2001, Bravemole is a moving story of courage. Perfect for prompting conversations about the tragedy or remembering the brave efforts of all who came forward to help, the tale celebrates the extraordinary capacity of the most humble to make a difference.
