Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 2—An unsuspecting weasel gets caught in a very bad storm with wind and rain and even hail. So he decides to build a shelter with walls and a roof to keep himself safe from the storm. One day, he finds a very friendly mole sitting on his couch. Weasel is concerned that his safe place is only for him. But happy-go-lucky Mole has a very different way of seeing the storm. He insists that rather than something to fear, a storm can be an opportunity for fun. The wind makes him ticklish, the rain makes puddles for splashing, and being out in the rain always makes drying off by the fire with a cup of soup extra special. In fact, Mole's advice is ultimately to face anything scary with a friend. Warnes's full-bleed digital illustrations effectively convey the emotions of the two characters. VERDICT Although not breaking any new ground, this would be an appropriate selection to give to kids with anxiety. Recommended for larger collections.—Jessica Marie, Salem Public Library, OR Copyright 2020 School Library Journal.
