Book Review

Mole is my favourite character because he didn't give up and he helped his friends

This is a really good book!

It’s a little bit sad at the beginning because Mole was sad he didn’t have friends but Mole is so kind and he helped all his friends and that made everyone feel happy.

My favourite part was the end when everyone became friends with Mole and they were all happy.

Mole is my favourite character because he didn’t give up and he helped his friends. It’s important to always try your to do best and never give up!
