The Moon of the Moles
Jean Craighead George
Underneath the farms and ranches of Kansas, a young Eastern mole roams her extensive network of tunnels searching for winter food—worms, insect larva, roots, and seeds. This is a story about the mole, her underground neighbors and the consequences of human actions. In Thirteen Moons—a spellbinding wildlife series—Newbery Award-winning author Jean Craighead George has captured thirteen North American animals in their natural environments and chronicled their fight for survival. From the lush Florida Everglades to the snowy Alaskan tundra, this series explores the intricate relationships among animals, plants, and the ever-changing environment in which they live. A favorite of adults and children alike, George’s entertaining and educational tales of nature alive and in action—Julie , Shark Beneath the Reef and Julie of the Wolves —have thrilled listeners for a generation. Barbara Caruso’s inspired narration captures the struggle for life beneath the earth’s surface, and will leave you rooting for the mole’s survival.
