Mordant's Wish Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

One day Mordant the mole looks up at the sky and sees a cloud shaped like a turtle . . . When Mordant the mole wishes for a friend, he sets off a chain of events that gracefully lead the reader to the happiest of endings.

Synopsis:

"A sunny, circuitous smile maker.... Mordant the mole wishes for a turtle friend, then blows on a dandelion.... Thus is set in motion a deliciously improbable chain of events that ends where it should, with a wish fulfilled. A predictable happy ending reached by an unpredictable route: what more satisfying formula for a story?" --Booklist
