The Mole and The Flower is the story of a plucky, determined young mole and her quest to find "the most beautiful flower". Heading off on an epic adventure to find him, Mole soon meets a grumpy, aging bloom.

Not used to visitors, Flower is surprised to cross paths with Mole but when the weather takes a turn for the worst it's up to him to protect the little creature from the elements. Together, the pair weather the storm to find that friendship can blossom no matter how old you are!

A generation-defying story, The Mole and The Flower asks children to not merely respect their elders, but understand and admire them too. After all, just because someone has gotten older doesn't mean they have nothing left to give. Motivated to combat the issue of loneliness and purpose amongst the elderly, author Helen Marshall was inspired to write this cross-generational story, taking inspiration from the natural world around her.

Review quote

"Once you catch the rhythm of the verse the story develops a momentum that is quite musical in its effect and I'm sure younger children will love that... Christopher Martin's illustrations are quite unusual and strike me as rather vintage or retro": The Letterpress Project
