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.

Children stories

The creator Ann Twigg composed these splendidly amusing stories to engage her grandkids and her classmates at school. Her motivation for these accounts came after a wicked mole chose to delve in her nursery.

Approval

This is the magnificence by Ann Twigg. I listened numerous book recordings which are composed by Ann Twigg and discover that he has an incredible ability. The ability is he can without much of a stretch catch the children’s consideration by his book recordings. In light of his audiobook recordings dependent on children dream, experience, etc.

That was the glad time manufacturer

In youth, I recall that nothing was excessively irritating as boring time as. Nowadays, Covid-19 has made the present circumstance without any problem. During lockdown, my kids gets exhausted and I was looking through something to evade the circumstance. At last, I discovered it. Simple, short and furthermore speedy book recording. However, it can eliminate the bareness.

A master piece audiobook for kids

What a phenomenal audiobook recording! It feels much more costly than what I paid for. This is an incredible sleep time audiobook recording, I have a 10 year old girl, and a 4 year old girl. Also, I can advise this audiobook recording to the two of them. It’s a lovely, solid, short audiobook.
