“Once upon a time, there was a wicked dragon...”

So begins the bedtime story that Mole tells his little babymole. But when real dragons attack, what's an ordinary mole to do? He does what he can, of course.

A modern-day fable inspired by the events of September 11, 2001, Bravemole honors the extraordinary capacity of ordinary people to make a difference in the world.

Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, 2003
“By telling the story of the Sept. 11 attacks ... as the tale of animals, the book makes these events just removed enough from reality to feel safe for children to read.”

“Speak(s) eloquently to kids and parents alike ... a pleasure to read aloud.”

“Parents looking for a way to talk with their children about the events of Sept. 11 will welcome this picture-book fable about the meaning of bravery.”
