Children are fascinating. Stories written about them or for them are equally so. Through this book, readers will enter into an amazing world. George Brummell’s work The Mole and the Violin will stoke readers’ imagination and fill them with wonder. The tale of Mikey the mole and his friendship with Emma the violinist is more than a story. It is an experience and a journey.

This book reveals an exquisite story where a seemingly insignificant animal from the dark corridors of the earth burrows his way daringly up to the surface. He risks experiencing something different. When Mikey unearths himself, he hears something so beautiful that he cannot help but follow its path—even though it means risking a possible encounter with real danger. He risks and runs headlong into a creature making the most beautiful sounds he has ever heard. Suddenly, he knows the experience of desire. He wants to be caught up in the beauty of what he hears, and this leads him to befriend the human girl, Emma. She cannot believe he talks. He cannot believe she cares. His search and her amazement bring them together as friends; and suddenly they come to teach each other things utterly new and wondrous.

Like all other children’s stories, The Mole and the Violin is just as much for adults. The pages readers are about to turn are more than just a story. They are the doorway into an experience—an experience of who people are and all they wish to be as humans, as family members, as friends, as citizens of this wonderful planet. Brummell has given readers a living pathway on which readers will journey with their children toward that moment they all crave when their dreams might become waking realities.
