‘The two cohabiting animals are characters that stand alongside the greats of children’s literature’ – Sunday Telegraph
First published in 1993, Mouse and Mole by award-winning author and illustrator team Joyce Dunbar and James Mayhew is a warm and gently humorous series for children about two furry best friends who find life full of little ups and downs.
Out of print for almost 20 years, we are delighted to bring this series back for children to enjoy today in a new larger hardback format. With its classic feel and endearing characters, Mouse and Mole is perfect for reading with young children and for older children to read independently.
Mouse and Mole was made into a television series devised by Joy Whitby’s Grasshopper Productions. The characters of Mouse and Mole were played by Richard Briers and Alan Bennett respectively, with Imelda Staunton joining them for a Christmas special, screened on BBC television.
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Dinah Hall said of the series: ‘The two cohabiting animals are characters that stand alongside the greats of children’s literature, Toad, Ratty and Winnie the Pooh. They work their magic not just on 2-6-year olds, but on parents too, so perfectly judged is the humour, and so perfectly paced the dialogue.’
