Book Review

I really, really liked reading this graphic novel

I really, really liked reading this graphic novel about a mole called Monti who lives a peaceful life in Pocketville.

One day, a newcomer named Leo arrives and agitates Monti! Once Monti got to know him, he finds out that Leo isn’t too bad. The happy friends go off to have lots of fun.

The pictures in this book are really good and I liked the characters too.
