Wild Wild Wood

Wild Wild Wood


In a beautiful, green, wild wild wood lives a gentle mole. But then a SOLD sign appears in the wood one morning, and Mole decides to write a firmly worded letter to Barry Bristlethwaite of Burnum Buildem Real Estate: their home is not for sale!

But when diggers arrive the next morning, Mole and his friends must activate Plan B! Will they be able to save their wood?

Wild Wild Wood is an empowering, rhyming tale about the power of using your voice.
