Mrs Mole, I’m Home! By Jarvis Shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award

We are delighted that Mrs Mole, I'm Home! has been shortlisted for the Children's Book Award by the Federation of Children's Books Group!

Morris the mole can’t find his glasses anywhere. So, he decides to go on without them, trusting his instincts to lead him the right way home to his waiting family and delicious dinner of worm noodles. 

“Mrs Mole, I’m homeeee!” he sings … as he burrows right into some poor unsuspecting rabbit family’s hole. Oh dear. Without his spectacles, Morris really can’t see a single thing – how will he ever get home? With perfect comic timing and a whole lot of heart, Jarvis will have all readers rooting for Morris to find his family, and rejoicing in the idea that – glasses or no glasses – you can always make your way back to home sweet home.

The Children’s Book Award is the only national award for children’s books that is voted for entirely by children. Children nationwide are now invited to vote for their favourite books. The deadline for online voting is 12.00 Friday 18th May.  

Good luck to Jarvis! You can see his fun animated trailer for Mrs Mole, I'm Home! below.
