KIRKUS REVIEW

Ned Delaney (Two Strikes, Four Eyes), who can pull off a Looneytunes caper and make you like it, here puts Mole and Bird in pursuit of a worm. First, Bird aboveground and Mole (unbeknownst) below, have a tug-of-war with one--that gets away; then they take to the skies, dig underground, scour the surface, and mistakenly fasten on snake--who has a mind to have them for dinner. But their ructions tickle his throat and he coughs them up: that narrow escape has cost them their appetite. Bright, broad, brash--but never mean or crude.
