Mole is mad about magic, so he is very excited to take his best friend Mouse to see Minkus the Magician. But Mole is left angry and sad when he finds out that Minkus's magic act is all an illusion. On the next night, however, a piece of paper slips under Mole's door; Mouse has invited him out to see "Midnight Magic," and she shows Mole the real magic all around him. Also the creator of the Fireman Small books, Theodor Seuss Geisel Honoree Wong Herbert Yee takes beginning readers into a cozy wooded world with his series about Mouse and Mole, neighbors and best friends who live in the same oak tree. Yee's simple, charming pencil and gouache illustrations make these chapter books for readers up to 7 a visual delight as well.
"The plentiful charcoal pencil and gouache illustrations ... imbue the moonlit nighttime scenes with appropriate mystery and wonder ... [and] a grand finale sure to satisfy the audience."—Horn Book
