Mrs Mole, I'm Home!

By Jarvis
Illustrated by Jarvis

Root for Morris the spectacle-wearing mole to find his way home in this laugh-out-loud story from Jarvis, the creator of Alan's Big, Scary Teeth.

“A worthy successor to Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth ... reading it aloud should trigger instant cries of “Again!” Guardian Morris the mole can’t find his glasses anywhere. So, he decides to go on without them, trusting his instincts to lead him the right way home to his waiting family and delicious dinner of worm noodles. “Mrs Mole, I’m homeeee!” he sings … as he burrows right into some poor unsuspecting rabbit family’s hole. Oh dear. Without his spectacles, Morris really can’t see a single thing – how will he ever get home? With perfect comic timing and a whole lot of heart, Jarvis will have all readers rooting for Morris to find his family, and rejoicing in the idea that – glasses or no glasses – you can always make your way back to home sweet home.

  • Another Jarvis read-aloud perfect for family story time ... particularly great read for children who wear glasses or who have parents who do!
  • Jarvis makes lush picture book worlds with very big hearts. His art is beautiful, atmospheric, textured and covetable
  • Young readers will love getting a sneaky peek into all kinds of animal homes: the rabbit burrow, the owl tree, the crocodile swamp ... even the Antarctic home of the penguins!

About the author

Jarvis studied graphic design and previously worked as both a record sleeve designer and an animation director before becoming a children's book illustrator. Alan's Big Scary Teeth, his debut title with Walker, was met to great acclaim, the New York Times writing: "The witty Jarvis makes all the right moves". About his picture book inspiration, Jarvis says, "The way I work is always visual. I will have an image or character in mind and I pull a story out of it. I doodle and doodle and doodle until I get it right." Jarvis lives in Manchester with his fiancé and their cat. Find him on Twitter as @heyimjarvis.
