One Mole Digging a Hole

All the animals are busy lending a hand in the garden in this lively counting rhyme by the author of The Gruffalo! The parrots are pulling up carrots, the bears are picking pears, and a swarm of bees are pruning the trees with their miniature shears. Julia Donaldson’s whimsical verse and Nick Sharratt’s hilarious illustrations make this book a delight to share aloud. With plenty to giggle at on every page, counting – and gardening – has never been so much fun!
