Grandpa Mole and the two young moles live under the roots of a big tree. When they go out, they meet new friends in the forest. There are three books in the series.
In A Special Gift, the three moles go in search of their natural talents. On the way, they meet a little duckling that has fallen down a hole, and the moles use their talent for digging holes to rescue the little duckling. They affirm their own abilities and learn to appreciate others. In Let’s Roast Sweet Potatoes, the moles start to argue with chipmunks when digging up the sweet potatoes. In the end, they learn to share their food and help each other. In Adventure in the Forest, the moles meet some baby birds, and rescue them from the owl’s clutches. As they do so, they see a wonderful Mikado Pheasant in the mist.
Chang Che-ming uses water colors to great effect and creates a beautifully detailed forest scene, featuring animals that are found in the forested mountains of Taiwan. The stories are fresh, charming and meaningful – they are quietly elegant animal stories.
