Synopsis

When Mole finds the baby bird injured and alone he takes it home to look after it very carefully. But soon Mole has the greatest dilemma of all - is the baby bird going to be a pet or is it going to be free. Mole is guided by two wonderful, carefully observed parents and a kind and thoughtful grandfather into making his final and touching decision. This tender and most gentle of picture books explores important and big themes in the most understated and subtle way. Like all Patrick Benson picture books this has the feeling of a children's classic in the making.
