A sprinkle of magic dust and a lost of imagination lead to dizzying fun, until it is time to be Moles again.

The Mole Sisters and the Question

Written and Illustrated by Roslyn Schwartz

The Mole Sisters and the Way Home

Written and Illustrated by Roslyn Schwartz

The Mole Sisters are on their way home when it starts to snow. What fun! They stop to build snow moles, then continue on their way, only to realize they are lost. Seeking shelter inside a cave, the Mole Sisters hang with the bats and marvel at the stunning stalactites. They come across primitive cave paintings and gleefully discover themselves depicted in the scene. How perfect. They continue on, softly home.
