KIRKUS REVIEW

Synthetic imitations (intended or not) of Lobel's Frog and Toad, Mole and Troll are two hairy and unlovable slobs whose four adventures center on competitive tunnel-digging, tying Mole's shoelaces, fighting at the beach over pinches that are really the work of a giggling crab, and making a dress for Troll's grandmother that only fits the model, Mole. None of this is below par for easy-reader humor, but Mole and Troll's amphibian prototypes are such peerless friends that this relationship seems all the shallower for the resemblance.
