Summary

A Happy Ending for Maurice the Mole

Grumpy Grandad’s loves his garden and he is finally rid of the pesky mole that has been destroying his lovely garden by digging. But things don’t go quite to plan for Grumpy Grandad when he finally gets rid of Maurice the Mole from his garden because he actually misses the naughty mole. Will he be able to find him before it’s too late?

The author Ann Twigg wrote these brilliantly funny stories to entertain her grandchildren and the children in her class at school. Her inspiration for these stories came after a naughty mole decided to dig in her garden. These hilariously funny stories will help children to use their imagination and have them laughing out loud.

Many children are inquisitive about animals, particularly animals that we don’t often get to see. Maurice the Mole is brought to life in a children’s story that is both funny and educational.

This is a light-hearted audiobook that has been proven to captivate children. Ann used to hold the attention of young children with this story at the school where she worked for many years. Ann reads at a pace that will have your children wanting to know more about what happened next to Maurice the Mole in Grumpy Grandad’s garden.

The great thing about this series of audiobooks is that young children can listen to something funny over and over again.

A lovely happy deserved ending for a cute but pesky, mischievous mole.

We enjoyed reading all the Maurice the Mole data’s but particularly this one due to the happy ending.

My kids and I love nature so felt quite sorry for Maurice at times throughout these short stories as we knew he was only doing what moles do! However we could understand why his behaviour could have been upsetting for Grumpy Grandad. We could empathise with both perspectives so couldn’t imagine an agreed happy ending or compromise.

We really liked this story though because Grumpy Grandad must have felt guilty for taking the pesky mile so far away, so he went in search of him. Unfortunately the poor mole has been poisoned but luckily Grumpy Grandad finds him and does the right thing by taking him to the vets.

Without spoiling the ending, it’s nice to hear that Grumpy Grandad continues to grumble as normality resumes in his garden.

A lovely, gentle read, suitable for any primary aged child or younger.
