Synopsis

When Mole finds a 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 story has the feeling of a children's classic in the making. "A tender story that gently informs the young reader about the importance of freedom. The subtle text combined with beautiful art and an important theme make this picture book a sure-fire classic for children of all ages." - "Publishing News".
