All You Need is Love

It's been a whirlwind of craziness here in Dallas lately.  Between snowstorms and stomach bugs, there hasn't been a lot of time for blogging.  But we're back now, just in time for Valentine's Day!  Over the next few days we'll share with you some of our favorite love-themed books.  We hope you enjoy them!

Mole's in Love by David Bedford featuring illustrations by Rosalind Beardshaw

It's springtime, love is in the air, and Morris the Mole is searching for his true love.  Although he can't see very well, he knows exactly what he's looking for.  He finds an animal with "luscious shiny black fur" and immediately falls head over heels.  But it's not his true love after all...it's a horse!  He comes across a "pretty pink nose," only to find out it's really a pig, not his true love.  He thinks he struck gold when he finds someone with "gorgeous big wide feet," but alas, it's a duck, and his heart is broken once again.  Just as Morris decides to throw in the towel, someone places a present on his nose, and when Morris peers through the gift, he sees all the things he has been looking for..."luscious shiny black fur, a pretty pink nose, gorgeous big wide feet and best of all" a matching pair of "perfect sparkly eyeglasses!"  And suddenly Morris isn't looking for love anymore because his love, Mini the Mole, has found him!
