Watch where you step, there’s a big pile of earth.
Let’s walk around it . . . what can we see?
Who lives here? Who could it be?
A brown furry mole!

Discover animal homes and their habitats in this beautiful book. Features a rabbit, a mole, a beaver, a wren, a mouse, and an owl.

This book is filled with stunning illustrations made with multiple layers of paper built into a collage creating a three-dimensional look: the animals’ fur looks real enough to touch.

Third stunning natural history title following on from Who is in the Egg? and Whose Tracks in the Snow? which was shortlisted for the UKLA Book Award 2024.  

Alexandra Milton is an artist and illustrator. She was born in Paris and brought up on a diet of beautifully illustrated children’s books. She studied art and English in Paris and then moved to England, where she worked as a primary school teacher before becoming a full-time illustrator. Her chosen media is collage. She has developed a unique artistic style, collecting paper from around the world that she tears and weaves into a multitude of layers to represent animals, birds, and plants.

The artwork in her debut children’s book, Call Me Gorgeous!, was nominated for the 2010 Kate Greenaway Medal. The book was also a 2009 Book Start choice, distributed free to 100,000 children across the UK.
